If I need to post this question in a different forum, please let me know.
I did find out that there is a Battery in the SCM.
I am assuming there is no juice left in the battery which seems very odd since the manufacturer date for the battery is 4/14/2011. Could there be another reason as to why the date changes to Oct 2012, which I think is odd as well, why Oct 2012 and not back 10 years or what ever it is that the date and time goes back to when the battery is dead.
To answer both questions:
- Yes, the batteries can go bad, but they are covered under the standard 3-year warranty. Product Warranty — How do I get warranty service?
- The best forum for questions about the MFS5520VI or other server products is Servers
We are still under warranty which is good. I will make the call to customer service to see about getting a replacement battery.
Thanks for the links.
