Re: Cache Batteries and VIOS



fixed

Just for the record
From a PC the process is ( My HMC is 180miles away so I don't know the
HMC steps )
Login as padamin
enter the cmd oem_setup_env
enter the cmd smit
Choose Devices / Disk Array / IBM SAS Disk Array /
IBM SAS Disk Array Manager / Diagnostics and Recovery Options /
and finally Controller Rechargeable Battery Maintenace

From here you can Display the battery info. force the batteries to erorr
or Start the Cache.

I figured out the Suse Linux version of STRSST. It's iprconfig
I showed that to our local IBM CE and he handled the batteries just fine.
I've yet to find it in VIOS.

Our local IBM techs are clueless on how to handle failing the cache
batteries on controllers owned by VIOS. I have figured out how/where to
fail to fail them, but just one question. Once the batteries are replaced,
will the cache come back on line like it does under IBM i? I am guessing
it is a function of the card not the OS, but wanted to make sure.

Thanks
