should a perc5i card reporting a battery issue cause a server to reboot
Posted on 2014-10-22
hi, I have a dell poweredge 840 using a perc5i raid controller.
I have just noticed the server has powered off 4 times in the last 48 hours, all that is reported in the event viewer is that the perc5i card battery needs replacing, which the dell server administrator program confirms.
should the dead battery be causing the server to collapse ?
we have 5 staff using the server as an 2003 sbs with sage on it. its not overly used to be honest, but we can run some big reports.
