This

 

might

 

take

 

a

 

few

 

minutes,

 

after

 

which

 

the

 

startup

 

process

 

continues.

 

This

 

is

 

a

 

one-time

 

occurrence.

 

Important:

 

You

 

must

 

allow

 

the

 

initialization

 

process

 

to

 

be

 

completed.

 

If

 

you

 

do

 

not,

 

the

 

battery

 

will

 

not

 

work,

 

and

 

the

 

server

 

might

 

not

 

start.

 

The

 

battery

 

comes

 

partially

 

charged,

 

at

 

30%

 

or

 

less

 

of

 

capacity.

 

Run

 

the

 

server

 

for

 

4

 

to

 

6

 

hours

 

to

 

fully

 

charge

 

the

 

controller

 

battery.

 

The

 

LED

 

just

 

above

 

the

 

battery

 

on

 

the

 

controller

 

remains

 

lit

 

until

 

the

 

battery

 

is

 

fully

 

charged.

 

Until

 

the

 

battery

 

is

 

fully

 

charged,

 

the

 

controller

 

firmware

 

sets

 

the

 

controller

 

cache

 

to

 

write-through

 

mode;

 

after

 

the

 

battery

 

is

 

fully

 

charged,

 

the

 

controller

 

firmware

 

re-enables

 

write-back

 

mode.

to

 

import

 

the

 

existing

 

RAID

 

configuration

 

to

 

the

 

new
