Set the new in service date

If you run the show battery-status command and the battery in-service date is not set, run the show battery-status -u command. Early model battery boards were not programmed with an in-service date. The show battery-status -u command sets the in-service date to the battery board manufacturing date and prompts the user to verify the date.

sccli> show battery-status -u

Stuck Alarms

Sometimes the alerts will get stuck, and keep alerting to messages that the battery is expiring, a quick restart of the SSagent should fix this.

# /etc/rc2.d/S81ssagent stop
# /etc/rc2.d/S81ssagent start

  1. .Verify the battery LED status is green (fully charged) or blinking green (indicates charging).
  • Note* - The batteries in controller FRUs experience discharge during shipment and might require an extended charging cycle upon initial power-up. Nominal battery operation is achieved when the battery status LED changes from amber to flashing green within 25 minutes after the initial power cycle. If the battery status LED remains amber for more than 25 minutes after the initial power-up, then the unit must be power cycled to initiate the extended charging cycle. If the battery status LED remains amber for more than 30 minutes after initiating the extended charging cycle, contact Sun service personnel for additional instructions.
  1. Verify the battery FRU status is OK by issuing the *sccli> show fru{*}command and examining the output for the battery module.
  • Example for 3510:*

  1. Verify normal frequency and completion of battery charging  in the eventlog or persistent eventlog by issuing the *sccli> show events* or{*}sccli>show persistent*-*event* command.
  • Example for 3510:*

sccli> show events

Tue Sep 5 08:54:15 2006 [Primary] Notification Controller BBU is Charging ! Tue Sep 5 08:54:19 2006 [Primary] Notification NOTICE: Controller BBU Fully Charged ! Tue Sep 5 08:55:08 2006

[Secondary] Notification NOTICE: Controller BBU Fully Charged ! -For irregular battery charging events, refer to  < Solution: 213453 >  : "Sun [StorEdge] [TM] 351x Array: Irregular Battery Charging Cycles".

-For battery not fully charged events, refer to  < Solution: 203139 >  : "Sun [StorEdge][TM] 3000 Arrays: Battery Not Fully Charged".

-For "*BBU Thermal Shutdown*" messages review the "Battery Operation" section in the  Sun [StorEdge] 3000 Family FRU Installation Guide and ensure temperatures are within  normal range.

-For battery failures shortly after upgrading to 4.11 on SE351x, review CR: 6286138 "Primary & secondary RAID controller batteries fault after 4.11 upgrade".

  1.  Verify battery expiration status:

-For 33x0, refer to < Solution: 214983 > : "Sun [StorEdge][TM] Battery Life Cycle".

-For 351x,  verify battery has not expired and that  battery status is *OK* by issuing the{*}sccli>show battery-status* command. Refer to < Solution: 212505 > : "Sun [StorEdge][TM] 351x  Array: Battery Expiration and Status Monitoring" for more details.

-For battery expiring events immediately after replacement on the 351x, refer to: "Refreshing the Battery Status With Sun [StorEdge] Configuration Service" in the  Sun [StorEdge] 3000 Family FRU Installation Guide.

  1.  Ensure there are no false battery failure messages. Refer to < Solution: 208997 >  "Mute Button on Sun [StorEdge][TM] 351x Array held in during reset of array will cause false messages".
  2. Ensure controller over temperature condition is not causing battery charging to shutoff  and battery status to be reported as *BAD*.  Use  the  *sccli> show peripheral device-status* command to verify the temperature sensor values are within safety range. Refer to section 4.1 Battery Operations in the Sun [StorEdge][TM] 3000 Family FRU Installation Guide for details.
  3.  *Replace battery for the following conditions:*

-Battery hardware status is BAD or Missing and there are no other hardware components reporting the same status

-For 351x, Battery status is Expired or Warning (will expire within 21 days)

-For 33x0, Battery lifecycle is expired

-Battery LED is solid amber (after battery module reseat has failed) indicating

battery is bad or missing

-Battery charge cycle events occur too frequently

-Battery 'fully charged' message is absent in the eventlogs

For details on battery replacement refer to: "Replacing a Battery or Battery Module" in the Sun [StorEdge] 3000 Family FRU Installation Guide for replacement instructions. Additionally, refer to < Solution: 203394 > : "Battery Replacement Procedure for a Sun [StorEdge][TM] 351x/33x0" and < Solution: 203047 > : "Battery Replacement Procedure for a Sun [StorEdge][TM] 33x0".

  1.  For 351x,  after battery replacement:

-Set the in-service date  by following the steps in:"FC Battery Status and In-Service Date Procedures" in the  Sun [StorEdge] 3000 Family FRU Installation Guide

-Rescan the battery in the Sun [StorEdge] Configuration Service: "Refreshing the Battery Status With Sun [StorEdge] Configuration Service" in the  Sun [StorEdge] 3000 Family FRU Installation Guide.

  1. If battery problems persist after replacement or additional hardware components are faulted or missing refer to the Technical Instruction < Solution: 215672 > : "Troubleshooting Sun [StorEdge][TM]  33x0/351x Hardware".
