No, you only need to worry about the cache battery if you are going to replace it.

We are going to take our 520 down this weekend to replace an
aging battery in the UPS. Except for the time my boss
accidentally unplugged the processor from the UPS, this will
be the first time that the system has been turned off since
it was installed over two years ago.

I read the Info Center section on shutting down the system,
which, in summary, includes stopping or holding jobs and
queues and doing a power down *Immed. Does the cache battery
need to be flushed? I checked out the STRSST option and it
said that, if the cache battery is forced into an error
state, it would have to be replaced. Also, it seemed to
indicate that the system would no longer use the cache (since
the battery would be in an error state); not a good thing obviously.
