P4500 G2 Cache battery replacement

Hi

We have a failed battery on our P4500G2. We've got the replacement however I can't seem to find any documentation on how i go about replacing it? I don't even know if we need to power down the unit to replace it - I'm hoping not of course as we have live production systems running on it and powering down isn't really an option!

Any help on this would be appriciated! :)

shutdown the server, remove the pci cage (3 screws), replace battery ( at the bottom of the chassis).

Hope this helps!
