(Optional) Installing the RAID Card Driver

Scenarios

If the server (such as the V5 server) uses the 3408 or 3508 RAID card, you need to install the RAID card driver for the image.

Procedure

  1. Upload the RAID-Brcm-CentOS7.3-megaraid_sas-07.706.07.00-1-x86_64.rpm package obtained in section Preparations to the VM. For details, see step 11 in section Configuring the VM Environment.
  2. Install the RAID card driver.
    1. Enter the directory where the .rpm package is stored and run the following command to install the driver:

      rpm -ivh RAID-Brcm-CentOS7.3-megaraid_sas-07.706.07.00-1-x86_64.rpm

      [root@localhost 3408]# rpm -ivh RAID-Brcm-CentOS7.3-megaraid_sas-07.706.07.00-1-x86_64.rpm
