- Any BBU failure must first be evaluated to ensure the current controller code is running before replacement. Especially for the following major releases:
- 08.20.XX.XX - Must be 08.20.27.00 or greater
- 08.25.XX.XX - Must be 08.25.14.00 or greater.
- 08.30.XX.XX - Must be 08.30.50.01 or greater.
- 08.40.XX.XX - Must be 08.40.60.01 or greater.
- All other releases by the platform can be verified in the SANtricity Support Matrix
- If the controller firmware is not current as listed above, the firmware must be updated first.
- After the firmware is updated, a new manual learn cycle must be run - How to manually start a battery learn cycle using SANtricity
- On rare occasions, this may need to be run twice to fully recover a battery affected by previous downrev code issues.
- If none of above solved the issue,
- All BBU's (Battery Backup Units) for all E-Series products are either LION or LIFEPO4 based thus have a 10-year projected lifespan when running with current code that is free of defects causing unwanted BBU malfunction.
