Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I installed open manage on a couple of my PE 2950s for snmp monitoring of the RAID. All the checks seem to come back okay except for controllerState:

[root@aMachine ~]# snmpwalk -v 2c -c bestNotToPostPasswords myMachine -m +StorageManagement-MIB controllerstate
    StorageManagement-MIB::controllerState.1 = INTEGER: degraded(6)

Other checks seems to indicate the battery, LD, and physicals disks are all good unless I missing something. Can anyone tell if I am missing something or neglecting something import in my RAID monitoring/understanding? I get degraded for both these servers I have set up.

Update 2, this is just to go for a question length record:
Hmm.. One of the two it turns out that the battery is about to start this process on its own. However, this doesn't seem to be the case on the other one. So I am thinking it is something else?

I should also mention that /opt/MegaRAID/MegaCli/MegaCli64 -LDInfo -Lall -aALL reuturns optimal on both servers. –  Kyle Brandt May 14 '10 at 13:47

How old is your server? In the dell docs, the degraded state of the controller means that the battery should be reconditioned. Normally this is done automatically, but if too old then you need to change it.

PS: if you have openmanage installed, there's somewhere a option to manually recondition the battery. Be careful because that task takes about 8-10 hours and in that time the battery is discharged and recharged.

Updated my question with more battery info. –  Kyle Brandt May 14 '10 at 13:34
    
Looking at that report it doesn't look bad. The year should be 2007 so, yes, about 3 years. Anyway the reconditioning should be available only for NiMHi batteries and your is LION. As dyasny suggested, try to replace the battery with another one, if you have another one. –  Pier May 14 '10 at 13:48
    
Calling now, but that reminded me of a third reason, the crap muzak I have to listen to ;-) –  Kyle Brandt May 14 '10 at 14:01

As I keep telling people here - why rely on online support, when you can call the vendor support? With Dell this sort of question is resolved right on the spot, with minimal work on your part.

Having said that, what I'd do is reseat the BBU, and if possible swap it out with another from the other PE9250s you have. If that doesn't help, you might need a replacement.

dynasy: I was planning on calling them if I don't get resolved. But a couple of reasons I like to start here is that often it is faster. Secondly, then the information will get indexed in Google and possibly save someone else the same call. –  Kyle Brandt May 14 '10 at 13:45
    
In my experience, calling support is faster, and if you want the solution to be known, blog about it (that's what I usually do) From my own experience in Dell support, there was a bunch of BBU's shipped that spent a bit too long in storage, and would fail very quickly. Once a call about those came in, the tech usually dispatched a replacement battery right away, no extra troubleshooting. Maybe you've got one of those, but only the support guys would be able to say for sure –  dyasny May 14 '10 at 14:16

The controller state requires that both the Controller Firmware and the kernel module (driver) be up to date. Once I updated both of those the controller state changed to "Ready."
