HP RAID Battery issue on elastic2004
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Icinga reports an HP RAID error:

WARNING: Slot 0: OK: 1I:1:1, 1I:1:2 - Controller: OK - Battery/Capacitor: Recharging

This looks similar to T163777 and probably requires changing the batttery. @Papaul could you have a look please?

Yours sincerely,

That's fast! Thanks! Ping me if you need me to be around when you install it.

I will because i have to update all the firmware too on the server. So will let you know tomorrow once I received the part


@Gehel Tracking information shows 10:30am CT as delivering time and it is almost 2pm. I contact UPS they let me know that due to the pass holidays the package will not be delivered until 7pm. We will have to postpone the replacement for tomorrow.

@Papaul you don't necessarily need me around for that. The only things I would do:

  • depool server
  • schedule downtime
  • shutdown server

Nothing you can't do on your own. But I'm happy to be around if you want!

@Gehel UPS just give me wrong timing> I just got email confirmation that i got the package on site.

can you go ahead and shut the server down please.


Battery replacement complete
Firmware update complete
