Proliant DL380 G4 w/failed battery

Hello,

Systems Management utility reports that the smart array 6i in slot 0 has a failed battery under Accelerator menu. Does this mean the BBWC battery pack needs to be replaced? I read on another thread that it could just be that the firmware needs to be updated to version 2.48 or higher? Can anyone advise of the best first step to take?

Regards

Upgrade Firm ware, first.
If that doesn't fix the problem, replace the battery.

Thank you for the response. I will update the firmware and then write back and let you know what happened. If the firmware does not fix the problem, what is the easiest way to find the part number for the replacement that I would need (sorry for all the questions, I'm new to HP servers).

I completely forgot to write back, but I just posted another question which reminded me I left this one "hanging."

I did update the firmware and that fixed the problem.
