  3. Click Export & Import.

    NOTE:

    Supports import and export of the BMC, BIOS, RAID controller card, and HBA configurations.

    • RAID controller cards include Avago SAS3004, LSI SAS3008IR, LSI SAS3108, Avago SAS3408, and Avago SAS3508. Scenarios where multiple RAID controller cards are used are not supported. For RAID controller card specifications, see Table 7-17. For HBA specifications, see Table 7-18. For BMC and BIOS specifications, see chapter "Configuration File Description in Huawei Rack Server iBMC User Guide of the corresponding version.
    • HBA cards include LPE 12002 and Qlogic 2672.
      • Before importing the Qlogic 2672 configuration, ensure that the FC port of the card is properly connected to the storage device, and ensure that the ID of the imported TargetLUN node is the same as the host LUN ID configured in the LUN group on the storage device.
      • Before exporting the Qlogic 2672 configuration, ensure that the FC port of the card is properly connected to the storage device, and ensure that the remote boot information TargetWWPN configured for the port is the same as the WWPN of the connected storage device. Otherwise, the exported configuration information does not contain the target node.
    The Export & Import window is displayed.
    • Export the configuration.
      • Export the configuration to a USB flash drive.
        NOTE:

        You need to insert a USB device into the USB port of the V5 server. If no USB flash drive information is displayed after the USB device is inserted, click Refresh in the lower left corner.

        1. Select Export Configurations, as shown in Figure 7-235.
        2. Select the configuration items to be exported.

          NOTE:

          The exported file is named in the following format: Exported configuration item name_cfg_Export time.tar.gz. The export time is the BMC system time.

      • Export the configuration to a network.
        NOTE:
        • Before the export, insert a network cable into the service network port of the V5 server.
        • When you select the CIFS protocol to export or import the configuration to a Windows system folder, you need to share the local folder with the administrator. To share the local folder, right-click the folder, choose Share with > Specific people, enter the user name of the remote server, click Add, and click Share.
        1. Select Export Configurations, as shown in Figure 7-236.
        2. Select the configuration items to be exported.
        3. Set the export mode to Network.
