Powertrust II LR Issue : Getting 3 Beep (Battery?)

Hello everyone. I have a HP 9000 running 11.0. I have a powertrust II LR and am getting 3 beep and the battery light illuminate for a brief second. From my understanding, the 3 beep is indicating that the battery is charging. My question is why is it doing it? does my battery need to be replace soon?

ALso is there a way to see the status of the battery? I found a HP UPS Manager 2 manual but I don't think I have it installed. I checked in the list of installed software in SAM and i don't see any UPS manager installed. Is there a command or something that lets me know the status of the battery.

Any help is much appreciated. Thank you.

Shalom,

Indications:

1) Possible battery degradation. These pups are only rated to last three years then they need replacement.
2) Possible power fluctuations causing the system to need the batter.
3) Battery has too much power being drawn on it causing it to draw the battery down to maintain power to all systems.

Make sure total amps drawn does not exceed capacity and investigate items 1 and 2.

Thank you for your response. I believe the battery was replaced a year ago but will check it out. It just started happening today so that is why I am being proactive and finding a solution before the system goes down.
