comment Smell of rotten eggs in the server room
Either a cascading failure occurred when one battery failed, overloading the remaining batteries and causing them to fail in turn, or the UPS itself malfunctioned and drove excessive voltage into all the batteries. Another possibility is one battery overheating causing the other batteries to be exposed to high temperatures and hence failing in a chain reaction.

@BigHomie: This is a special case. I wouldn't vote to close as duplicate because this is a potentially dangerous condition that should be treated on its own. It's also not really a burning, fire, or overheating scenario more than it is a battery chemical failure. Lumping the two questions together could confuse readers.

Are you sure this is not an enterprise storage question? Please use Server Fault for this type of question; we don't do Fibre Channel storage arrays here on Super User. (Please don't cross-post, though.)
