Good morning I'm replacing a battery backup cache for an HP ProliantML370. We have a HPsmart array 6400 controller with 128mbddr. board #309520-001. We got the replacement in and it was supposed to be 128mbddr but they sent 256mb ddr. Can I take the 128mbddr and replace it with 256mb ddr will there be any issues thank you.

The battery pack on your picture does not seem to be removable from the card... They should have just sent the battery pack - so I don't understand where the different memory size comes from...

Did they send you a whole new card maybe because it is not replaceable?

I have the 128mb memory battery the picture at the top of the card. The one they sent me was 256 mb I was under the impression I have to replace the one at the top off the card but are you saying I need to replace the one at the bottom of the card if so that one can be taken off very easily and replaced. What do you think?

You need to replace the black roundy thing sayng 3.6V Ni-MH Battery Pack. It has nothing to do with the capacity.

Chlebi is right.
For procedure look at page 40.

Normally there is no problem replacing the battery pack.

Replacing battery has no impact on the RAID array. After you replace you will see in BIOS that the Array Accelerator Posted Write Cache is temporiary disabled and it will enable itself when battery reaches full charge.
