  • Vmware ESXi warning - Battery on Controller 0 Charging ...

    Hi All,

    I've got this frequent warning from some of my ESXi server which is running on Dell Power Edge 2950-III

    Code:
    Status: Warning (Yellow)
    Alarm: Host hardware sensor status changed
    Time: 24/10/2010 10:10:57 PM
    Sensor "Battery on Controller 0 Charging ..." equal Warning.
    Sensor "VMware Rollup Health State" equal Warning
    is there any thing that I should / can do about this warning ?

    Any kind of help and suggestion would be greatly appreaciated.

    Thanks

          I've seen similar errors lots of times on HP Proliant servers after any significant period of time they are offline and recently brought online. It's just a warning telling you the battery backup unit on your raid controller is now charging. The batteries allow for the controller to write the data on the RAM once they're brought back online after a power outage. I quickly googled and found you a bit of info on the Dell boxes. The 2950 IIIs are fairly new so you shouldn't have a number of faulty batteries already but there's a way to test them anyhow. See docs below.

          Cheers,
