Drive Array Accelerator Battery Failed.  The array accelerator board attached to the array controller in Slot 0 is reporting a battery failure.

I've seen another EE posting saying this could be either a dead battery or it might actually just be something that can be fixed with a firmware upgrade.

Has anyone else experienced this with an HP Proliant DL380 G4 or simliar server?
I drive controller is Smart Array 6i.
