    RAID Controller RS2BL040 BBU Fault

    AOZ

      Either I'm so unlucky or it's common trouble for  RS2BL040. Or a certain firmware. Can someone suggest?

      2 Intel servers with the same configuration and software in a different contries from different supplyers

      I just never use Intel raid controllers before and after. Only LSI or Adaptec. Never seen BBU fault. It was my first time.

      I see the servers perfomance degrade this month. Just write cache switched off.

      This is the BBU after 2-2.5 years of usage. Both the same:

      So I try to do the learn cicle manualy without success.

      May be it's possible to fix somehow?
