Hi,

How did you replace the battery ?

If the new battery was installed with the EVA powered off, then the new battery will pick up the status of the old one, rendering it useless.

Cheers,

Hi,

If the batteries are good, then the battery status LED should automatically change to green...

If they haven't then you may need to restart and/or power cycle the controllers.

Hello,

you can shutdown the complete EVA by clinking "shutdown". Then the drive enclosures will power off, also the controllers. After that power-cycle the drive enclosures and wait until the drives are up and running (round about two minutes). Then start the top controller and after it has beed started, the bottom controller.

Best regards,
Patrick

Dear concerned

We cannot shutdown the whole EVA system because it is a live system. Our costomer will not support us.Actually where this problem "Battery LED blinking RED" is standby controller. So please give me a procedure to start the stand by controller after it was shutdown(from EVA command view).

Thanks

Re: Controller battery alarm LED still blinking RED

you don't need shutdown all storage.
from you will see a menu right side of the screen. there is a button . click shutdown button there will be menu.
chose the controller and click the restart.
After restarting complete restart the Controller B.

Restart the Controller ONE by ONE !.
