Smart Array 641 reporting "Parity Initialization Failed"

The HP Array Diagnostics Utility is reporting Smart Array 641 card "Parity Initialization Failed".

What does this mean? Could this be caused by a failed Controller Battery?

Possibly, more likely a broken disk. Any read errors on any of the disks seen in the ADU?

The ADU is reporting the following:

Smart Array 641 in slot 6 : Device Error Report

Device Severity Error

All of the drive indicate that they are OK.
