When I off the server without off the plug, when re-on back everything is OK.
If I off the server and off the switch of the power cable's plug, when I on back, the CMOS date is running out, it will back to year 2002....etc. What's wrong?

    Accepted Solution

    It looks like your CMOS battery may need to be replaced. You should be able to find a replacement battery (i recommend you take your current one with you or at least write down all the information) at a local electronics store if not at your local supermarket.
    I hope this helps. Good luck.
