RS25SB008 RAID Controller "Needs Attention" - Firmware issue?



I have updated my RS25SB008 Raid card with the latest firmware package posted to the website and am running the recently released WS2012

driver. Despite my the fact that my drives are in optimal state, the raid controller continues to report it "Needs Attention". The only problem I can see is that the battery is reporting Temperature as "High", with the reported temperature at 26 C - which is probably accurate. I have done everything I can to resolve the issue (the battery is now physically outside of the server) and I have triggered a "learn" cycle. Is the high temperature alert for the BBU broken? How can the status on the controller be cleared?

I see that there is a CmdTool2 -AdpBbuCmd -SetBbuProperties -f -aN|-a0,1,2|-aALL command, but there does not seem to be any other documentation.

Any insight would be appreciated...

Thank you,

Doug Coleman
