Title: METHOD FOR DETECTING HARDWARE FAULT OF SERVER, APPARATUS THEREOF, AND SERVER
Abstract:
A method for detecting a hardware fault of a server, an apparatus thereof, and a server. The method comprises: a basic input/output system apparatus of a server detects that the server enters a starting stage (S101); the basic input/output system apparatus starts to perform fault detection on hardware of the server in working stages, the working stages comprising the starting stage (S102); and the basic input/output system apparatus stores the detected hardware fault information (S103). In the method, a basic input/output system apparatus detects hardware fault information, and the hardware fault pre-detection covers hardware of a server in a whole running cycle of the server, so that faults occurring on the server in the running process are handled in time, thereby improving the running stability of and reliability of the server. The detected hardware fault information is stored, which helps a person to handle the faults, and unified storage management of the hardware fault information is implemented.
