DL380 G5

I have a new DL380 G5 and when I boot I dont get the Ctrl+A to access the ACU

I get the following message after the P400 has been detected

1794 - Slot 1 Drive Array - Array Accelerator Battery Charge Low
Array Accelerator Post-Write Cache is temporary disabled
Array Accelerator will be re enabled when batteries reach full charge!

Any ideas why I cant get to the ACU

I have 2 72Gb disks installed and lights are flashing

Sorry the BBWC LED on the Battery is flashing? As I assume its charging but should this affect me accessing the ACU?

Re: DL380 G5

No, It means that you temporary have no BBWC. BBWC is mainly used for performance and you won't be able to edit the read-write prios or to extend/expand the arrays. The other options will be accessible all the time. Just wait for 48-72 hours (the time needed for loading the battery), if the problem remains, just call HP for replacing the battery.

It is the F8 key to get to the offline config screen, isn't it?

Hope this helps!

HI,
CTRL+A is for adaptec raid controllers; CRTL+I for intel based.

As mentioned by Torsten, you need F8 for ACU.

Have you changed Battery recently ? If so, it needs a minimum 48 Hrs to be fully charged.

If this is an old server, then you need to change the Battery.

Well, a little correction - with F8 you get to the ORCA, it has basic configuration settings... ACU goes through Smartstart or through the installed utility in the OS.
