Performance and Reliability
Performance and reliability refer to the ability of the IBM ServeRAID MR10i Li-Ion Battery 43W4342 to provide reliable power to the ServeRAID controller and maintain data protection in the event of a power failure. The battery can hold a charge for up to 72 hours, which ensures that the controller can continue to function even if the power is out for an extended period of time. The battery can also recharge to 90% of its capacity within three hours, which means that it will be ready to provide power again quickly after a power failure.
Additionally, the battery is designed to have a low failure rate, meaning that it is less likely to fail and cause unexpected downtime. The battery is hot-swappable, which means that it can be replaced without shutting down the system, and it also has built-in protection against overcharging, overdischarging, and overheating. This helps to extend the battery's life and ensure that it is always ready to provide power when needed. With the battery installed, the ServeRAID controller can also provide advanced data protection features such as RAID levels 5, 6 and 10, and also cache data protection.
The IBM ServeRAID MR10i Li-Ion Battery 43W4342 is designed to provide reliable power to the ServeRAID controller and to maintain data protection in the event of a power failure. The battery can hold a charge for up to 72 hours and can recharge to 90% of its capacity within three hours. The battery has a limited lifetime and the battery life can be monitored and maintained through the ServeRAID controller's web-based interface or through the ServeRAID Manager application.
Compatibility and System Requirements
Compatibility and system requirements refer to the specific systems and configurations that the IBM ServeRAID MR10i Li-Ion Battery 43W4342 is designed to work with. The battery is compatible with IBM ServeRAID MR10i and IBM ServeRAID MR10i-SAS controllers. It is also compatible with IBM System x3400, x3500, x3550, x3650, x3755, x3850, x3950 and x3950 X5 servers.
This includes the specific server models and RAID controllers that the battery is compatible with, as well as any software or firmware versions that may be required. It is important to ensure that the battery is compatible with the server and RAID controller before installation to ensure proper operation and to avoid any potential issues.
In terms of system requirements, the battery requires a free slot in the ServeRAID controller and a free bay in the server. It also requires a minimum of one power supply with a minimum rating of 550 watts. The battery should be installed in a controlled environment with a temperature range of 10 to 35 degree Celsius and humidity range of 20 to 80%. It is also important to ensure that the battery is installed and replaced by trained personnel.
It is also important to note that the battery is not supported with the ServeRAID M5110, M5100, M5015, M5014, M5013, M5012 and M5011 controllers.
Upgrading and Replacing
"Upgrading and Replacing" refers to the process of replacing an older or outdated product with a newer or more advanced version. In the case of the IBM 43W4342 ServeRaid MR10i Li-Ion Battery, upgrading and replacing would involve removing the current battery and installing a new one. This could be done for a variety of reasons, such as to improve performance, reliability, or to replace a battery that has reached the end of its useful life. Compatibility and system requirements would be important to consider when replacing this battery as it is designed specifically for IBM ServeRAID MR10i controllers, so it may not be compatible with other systems and controllers.
Upgrading and replacing the IBM 43W4342 ServeRaid MR10i Li-Ion Battery is a simple process, but it is important to make sure that the new battery is compatible with the system and controller it is being installed on. To upgrade or replace the battery, the first step would be to ensure that the system is powered off and unplugged. Next, the old battery can be removed from the controller by carefully sliding it out of its compartment and disconnecting the power cable. The new battery can then be inserted into the compartment and connected to the power cable. Once the battery is securely installed, the system can be powered on and the new battery can be initialized.
It is important to note that when upgrading or replacing a battery, it is a good idea to also update the firmware and drivers for the controller to ensure optimal performance and compatibility.
It's also good practice to test the new battery by running through a series of tests to ensure that it is working properly and providing the desired level of protection for the data.
