Tutorial to access the LSI RAID controller's BIOS configuration utility on Huawei Grantley-platform servers.
My server is Huawei RH 1288 v3 using an LSI SAS 2308 onboard RAID card.
- Open iBMC web interface and log in
- Install Java >=8 on your service computer
- Open the IPMI remote console in the iBMC (rightmost button in the iBMC web interface). Connect to the remote console.
- Hard reset the server using the option in the toolbar.
- After the "Welcome to The Server" dialog, the Avago BIOS loading stage will start. It will prompt you to press CTRL+C after initialization (takes about 30 seconds).
- Press Ctrl+C at the prompt, and wait for the configuration to load.
