Re: DL 385 g1

Hello srjohny,

your issue isthe battery for DL385g1 is simplly to old and dead and can not afford full caching function of smartarray in your server. This usually happens after 5-6 years of use an requires battery replacement. Contact you HP sales representative to get new smart array battery. In case you do not need cache, you can use your server without it, but performance is REALLY degraded.
