HP BL860c i2 boot issues

I am currently configuring some blades that I am going to be shipping to a customer location and it seems as if there is no way to configure the boot options and have them stay through a AC power loss?

I have tried doing it a couple different ways:

through the OS(OpenVMS - so @sys$system:bootoptions)

through bcfg command in EFI

using the VMS_BCFG command included w/ the VMS boot files

using the boot manager prior to UEFI shell

All options work just fine until I remove the blade for a few seconds from the enclosure and put it back in and start it back up and the boot options are gone.  Am I missing something here?

Re: HP BL860c i2 boot issues

looks like a battery issue?
the log may tell you.

Hope this helps!

Nope, I thought that as well but there is no indication in the logs or in the System Health on the ILO showing any issues w/ the batteries as well as this is the case with about 30 different(same model) blades ordered at various times.
