Updating the compute node configuration

Use this information to update the compute node configuration.

When the compute node starts for the first time after you add or remove an internal device, you might receive a message that the configuration has changed. See the ThinkSystem SN550 V2 Setup Guide for more information.

Some devices have device drivers that you must install. See the documentation that comes with each device for information about installing device drivers.

If you replace a part, such as an adapter, that contains firmware, you might also need to update the firmware for that part. For more information about updating firmware, see Firmware updates.

Update the UEFI configuration if necessary.

Reconfigure the disk arrays if you have installed or removed a hot-swap drive or a RAID adapter. See the Lenovo XClarity Provisioning Manager V3 User Guide, which is available for download at: Lenovo XClarity Provisioning Manager V3 online documentation.

The compute node operates as a symmetric multiprocessing (SMP) compute node, regardless of how many processors are installed. For optimum performance, you must upgrade the operating system to support SMP. See your operating-system documentation for additional information.
