Issue

Apr 27 08:31:18 [Node1:nvmem.battery.unread:EMERGENCY]: The NVMEM battery state cannot be determined because the 'Bat Initial FCC' sensor is unreadable. To prevent data loss, the system will shut down in 5 minutes.

WARNING:  The battery is unfit to retain data during a power
          outage.  This is likely because the battery is
          discharged but could be due to other temporary
          conditions.
          When the battery is ready, the boot process will
          complete and services will be engaged.
          To override this delay, press 'c' followed by 'Enter'
