Pinned topic DS3200 Smart Battery Learn Cycle

‏2014-05-14T12:19:35Z |

I have got an IBM Storage System DS3200. I also use the IBM DS Storage Manager 10. 

I have Firmware Version. 07.35.53.00 and I was reading that if you have version 07.35.41.00 or higher you can use a feature called Smart Battery Learn Cycle. The problem is that my battery is still being expired and working with the timer system.

Why is this? Is it because you need to enable the feature from somewere? What can I do to start using this feature?

â€

Thanks,

Joseph‹

      Thanks for your reply.

      So you are saying that I should reset the battery age timer and if the battery will be come faulty in 4 months it will alert me?

       

      Shall I enable something for this feature to become active or should I just ignore the timer and reset it as it will alert me if the battery is really faulty?

       

      Thanks,

      Joseph

        Joseph,

        yes, you should reset the battery age timer and if the battery will be come faulty in X months it will alert you.

        Yes,  you should I just ignore the timer and reset it as it will alert you. If the battery is really faulty it would be marked as Fault, but not expired.

          Ok I will now reset the age timer without doing anything else and wont worry about the battery being fault as it will alert me.
