ML350 G6 - POST Error 1732 Array Accelerator Battery Pack Missing

Hi,

We just bought a new ML350 G6. Everytime the server boots, the message:

POST Error: 1732 - Array Accelerator Battery Pack Missing- Array Accelerator Posted-Write Cache is Permanently Disabled.- Array Accelerator will be re-enabled when additional battery packs are installed.

appear.

It's loging an event in Windows Event viewer too.

There is no Battery pack on the server.

Is there a way to avoid this message at every startup?

Thanks!

Jim

Hi Jim,

There is a fix for this in newer firmware for the SAS/SATA Smart Array controllers. You need to update if the controller has old firmware.

You can download the latest firmware update CD ISO image V8.60 from here.

http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareDescription.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodTypeId=15351&prodSeriesId=3884315&prodNameId=3884316&swEnvOID=1005&swLang=13&mode=2&taskId=135&swItem=MTX-124beffbed3842cea0b9b3f962

Boot the server from the CD once you have burned it and select the controller to upgrade (P400, P600, P800 etc).

I hope this helps,

Brian

Just a note, we received in 3 DL380 G6's. Each get the same message though there is not a battery pack installed. I look forward to hearing if a firmware update does indeed resolve this issue.

I did the upgrade of Array controller firmware from version 2.0 to 2.50

and there is no error message anymore.

Thanks!

Great, thanks for the update, we weren't able to update ours as we had planned, but I will confirm the fix for our 380G6's as soon as we get the fix installed.
