BladeSystem c7000 Onboard Administrator battery

Hello all,
We are moving a c7000 Blade encloure to a new data center and are not sure if the Onboard Administrator can keep its settings after its power has been removed. I'm assuming it has a small battery inside to save those settings. Anyone nkow for sure?

Was able to find how to backup the Configuration Scripts in case the settings are lost during the move though. (page 111)

Pretty sure that there is flash memory for that. But take configs to USB stick to be sure.

Yes, these settings are stored on the OA's in memory. If you pull the OA out (or both) they will keep the settings in the non volatile memory.
The truth is out there, but I forgot the URL..
