Re: Accelerator Battery failure

This battery is only for write cache and array configuration is stored on disks.
First of all update your controller firmare--there is an issue with old fw that reports false battery failure.
Raplacing the battery takes for me no more than 10 min.

Re: Accelerator Battery failure

Thanks for your response,
Actualy the warning got corrected on its own.
The battery status is now showing enabled.and there are no degrades/failure in the insight manager.
Thanks again

Upgrade the controller firmware to 2.58A, its the fix for this issue
