Re: Batteries replacement for smart array 6400

If you correctly shutdown server, all data from controllers cache are wroten to the disk. Then you can replace batteries. All other configuration data (array configuration, etc.) are stored on the disks.
Special procedures are necessary only when unflushed data are in the cache memory.
