this should work...
according to C H A P T E R 4 - Battery FRUs
it looks you're correct.

I'd suggest to contact Sun Support Services...

The only option I can think of right now is to ask the user to upgrade the sccli package from 1.5 to 1.6 or above. This should not have impact on the prod box. However, I suspect that the firmware could be low, thus hanging during sscli input and causing syntax errors. But I can confirm that such migration of firmware needs resetting of the controller which needs downtime. B4 I can suggest anything to user, I need to be sure of my action plan and noting else should screw up. Any further ideas or advise?Smilie

Incredible has a couple of good points there. The firmware version is VERY old, I haven't seen a 3.27 version in probably two years. The sscs version is also very old, and didn't have all of the features which are available in the later versions. With older versions some of the settings still have to be performed through the out-of-band interface on the array either by serial connection or the network interface.
