Drive Array accelerator battery failed

Hi

Got this error on a Proliant ML530 G2. 1. What does it actually means? 2. What would be the best course of action to take?

Thanx in advance

Re: Drive Array accelerator battery failed

1.) The Error message is basically stating that the battery on the array accelerator(BBWC) is failed, meaning needs to be replaced. The Array accelerator (Read/Write cache) will be disabled till it is replaced.

2.) However depending on what controller you have this could be a false message and fixed via a firmware update on the controller. SA-6400, and SA-641 Have this issue with firmware and false error message about the battery being failed.
