ProLiant DL380 G5 Raid Array BBWC Battery Replacement

I was curious what the general procedure is for replacing the raid array battery...what I mean is, Do you have to power down or can you do a hot swap of the battery? Also if you power down,which I assume you do, is there any risk of losing info anything that the battery retains?

I just want to be safe about it since this is a very specifc battery and I dont want to loose anything while replacing this. Any thoughts,info and advise is appreciated. Thanks in advance.

hey,

 

You need to shutdown the server.

 

Replace battery

 

Turn server back on, you will loose nothing.

 

(There will be a message at startup saying that the battery is charging)

 

Cheers
