E01020207:EID_BBU_FAULTY Alarm message meaning?

I have a P4300 running version


Event:           E01020207:EID_BBU_FAULTY

Message:    The 'cache 1'BBU status is 'Faulty'.  Contact technical support for assistance.

Type:            Cache

Name:          Cache 1

Component: HW


I have a critical alarm that does not go away by rebooting. I can find no documentation or mention of the alarm while searching all of HP -- or any other P4300 alarm using link provided per alarm via the management console.


What does the alarm mean and how the clear the alarm? All I know from cryptic alarm text is that it has something to do with cache.

If it is a Node which is not added to a Management Group, Then just right click on the RAID under Storage and Rebuild RAID.

Else contact HP Support.
There is a Support only Patch for this condition. Patch 10096.
HP Support should install the patch for you.

Sounds like the battery of the smart array controller is dead.

Hope this helps!

Yep.  Using the Management Console  I was able to determine that the cache battery was in a failed state.  What I cannot find now is any information about the P4300 hardware or where and how to replace.  It's using a SmartArray but I cannot determine what the underlying hardware platform is.  I have asked the site (now in Spain) to provide the s/n so we can use HP to replace.
