ESX tells me there's a battery alert -- Battery Status: Fully Charged

Setting up a couple of IBM x3850 M2's. ESX gives an alert about the battery on controller 0. The reading is "Battery Status: Fully Charged". Obviously ESX is miscategorizing this as an error condition. Smiley Happy Anyone have any idea how to clear this up or override it?

try to "reset sensors" or if that doesn't work at the service console of the ESX Host in question issue:

>service pegasus restart

Thanks for the suggestion, but no go. It stays red, though the message will sometimes alternate between "Fully Charged" and "Learning".

Thank you. Looks like I'll need to wait until Update 5.

I have the same issue on 5x Dell poweredge 2950iii's. All 5 show bad battery status on the raid controller.
