POST Error 1613 Battery low

I have two Proliant 6500 servers that are displaying Error 1613 during post saying the battery is low and needs to be replaced in 7 days (I think) to prevent configuration loss.
I've searched these forums and the only 1613 I came across was someone with a Proliant 5000. Where is this battery in the 6500 so I can replace it?

Re: POST Error 1613 Battery low

Is this the Pentium Pro model or the Xeon?

The Pentium Pro uses part number 160274-001 and the Xeon model uses part number 179322-001. I have attached a word doc which contains pics of the locations.
The truth is out there, but I forgot the URL..

Actually one is Pentium Pro based, the other is a eight way Xeon 700.

Re: POST Error 1613 Battery low

The picture showing 160274-001 connects to position 23 on the system board. The part has four pins, two active. Position 23 appears to have many more than four connections, though I may be wrong. Is 23 the correct port to connect the four port lead from the replacement battery?

Re: POST Error 1613 Battery low

Sorry.....I fat fingered the numbers. It should be location #22. I can't find the maintenance and service guide for this server right now, but the top cover for that server should have more info on where to install the battery.

Re: POST Error 1613 Battery low

Boy did I screw up. I said it was a Proliant 6500 8 way Xeon. I purchased batteries, went to the rack slid the machine out and realized it is a DL760 G1.

So now that I have extra batteries for a Xeon based 6500 (I don't need) I am looking for a fix for the same 1613 error code for the DL760. While I have the system open I see a CR2032 battery on the left side of the chassis (next to the fans). Is that the battery to replace?
