Re: how can i install centos on HPE ProLiant ML350 Gen10 Server

Steps To install Centos operating system on HPE ProLiant ML350 Gen10 Server through iLO 5 web interface.

1.. Connect the Ethernet cable between the network connector on the server and a network jack.
2. Press the Power On/Standby button.
3. During server POST, press F10.
4. On the Intelligent Provisioning home screen, click Perform Maintenance.
5. Select Raid Configuration from the maintenance options.
6. The Smart Storage Administrator window is displayed

RAID Configuration:
On the Smart Storage Administrator screen, under Actions, click Configure. Options include:
• Modify Controller settings—Configures the supported controller settings. Depending on the controller, the options can include setting the array accelerator cache ratio, transform and rebuild priorities, and surface scan delay.
• Set Sanitize Lock—Changes your Sanitize Lock Settings. This option is only available on controllers that support Freeze or Anti-Freeze.
• Advanced Controller Settings—Configures the supported advanced controller settings. The settings can help improve the controller performance for Video-On-Demand applications. For example, changing the elevator sort parameters.
• Modify spare activation mode—Switches the spare activation mode from the default behaviour (activate on failure only) to predictive spare activation and back.
• Clear configuration—Resets the controller configuration to its default state. Existing arrays or logical drives are deleted, and data on the logical drives is lost. Confirm that this option is the preferred action before proceeding.
• Manage Power Settings—Modifies the controller power mode and enables or disables survival mode for supported controllers. A reboot or cold boot may be required after changing power modes to optimize power savings and performance.
• Set Bootable Logical Drive/Volume—Sets the primary and secondary boot logical drives and volumes. Local logical drives as well as remote logical drives and volumes are listed for selection.
• Check Online Firmware Activation Readiness—Check the current configuration to determine if an Online Firmware Activation is allowed.
• Manage Device Identification LEDs—Turn the physical drive identification LEDs On or O„.
• Caching settings—Configures the supported caching settings which can help increase performance by taking advantage of cache memory. Caching also helps protect data integrity when used with a battery or capacitor.
• Physical drive write cache settings—Enables or disables the write cache on physical drives attached to a controller.
This feature can improve performance but precautions must be taken to ensure data integrity.
• Manage License Keys—Enables the user to add or remove license keys. Depending on the keys entered or removed, various features can be enabled or disabled.
• More information—Provides an in-depth display of available information for the currently selected device and all its child devices, when applicable.

7. Once RAID has been configured, reboot the server and mount CentOS image using iLO Virtual media.
8. To display the boot menu, press F11 during server POST.
9. Press 1 on the keyboard to boot from the CD/DVD.
10. Allow the server to boot with CentOS media and follow the instruction to install CentOS.
