Controller Card, Battery Health, Failed

Controller Card, Battery Health, Failed
We have 10 B1200i devices and 8 of them show:
Controller Card / Battery Health / Failed
What is the procedure for replacing the batteries?
What is the purpose of a battery on the iSCIS card?
Would the failed battery be the root cause of my DROBO B1200i losing connection to the network?

RE: Controller Card, Battery Health, Failed
hi tadpole, on other drobos i believe there is an internal, self-recharching on-board battery to help against power cuts... maybe the b1200i's also have one on the iscsi card as an extra failsafe?

there was another user who mentioned replacing a couple of bad controller cards before, and that it solved their connnection issues... am not sure exactly what the battery is for, and it may just be a large button battery like some motherboards on computer, though probably best to contact support to double check, in case it needs or uses something specifically?

(btw i have XP home SP2, a Drobo v1 with 2x 1TB/2x 1.5TB WD greens, & a bkp Drobo v2 with the same + a DroboShare: unused)
& a DroboS v2 with 3xWD15EADS &2x1TB in DDR mode on win7, & a drobo5D (all usb)
  • btw i did a sustained (write) operation for about 6 hours, and got 13.2MB / sec ...objection? "sustained" :)
    (16.7MB/s on a v2 & 47-96MB/s drobo-s)
