ProLiant DL380 G5 replace drive array

Hi.

We have the ProLiant DL380 G5 and Smart Array P800.
Can not find batteries for cache. Want to replace the Smart Array P800 on similar characteristics but without batteries.
Smart Array advise what we need?

Re: ProLiant DL380 G5 replace drive array

A smart array controller can have cache to improve performance and enable features. In order to protect the write cache in case of power loss the controller have either a battery or a supercap. These power sources are used to either hold the cache or write it to a flash memory on the cache module. Witch a battery you cannot use write cache at all.

 

So just replace the battery.


Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.
