So I replaced the battery for my Dell Perc 5/i controller since the machine had an error code that it needed to be replaced. I ordered the battery directly from dell based on the service code and installed it without issue.
In open manage it still showed as an issue, so I chose the option to learn under I went in to Dell Open Manage and told it to Learn/Cycle Storage->Perc->Battery->Tasks (it was the only option).
That was approximately 1 week ago! It said it could take 72 hours, but it's still going. This is the current status:
Battery on Controller PERC 5/i Integrated Name Battery 0 State Learning Predicted Capacity Status Unknown Learn State Active Next Learn Time 0 hours Maximum Learn Delay 7 days 0 hours Battery Tasks No Task Available
