If the Battery is Not Fully Charged

Every three months, the RAID card automatically reconditions its battery by completely
discharging and then recharging it. During the reconditioning cycle, you may see an
alert advising you that the 72-hour battery reserve is unavailable and the controller
status may indicate that write caches are disabled. Performance may be slightly
degraded during this time, but will return to normal when the battery is recharged.

To check battery status:


Open RAID Utility.


Click Status in the left column.

The current state of the battery is also indicated by the icon in the lower-left corner of
the RAID Utility window.
