Battery Charger Daemon
« on: January 22, 2010, 12:15:06 PM »

We received these message from our 3200 this morning:

module BM function battery_charger_daemon:  Battery transition from charged to charging (this was repeated  once a minute for 10 minutes)

then we had this:

module BM: The battery charger daemon failed

followed by:

Battery State Change: Previous State: Charged, New State: Failed
Source: RCP
General Purpose Flags: 0x00000b44


What do I need to do to resolve this? 
Thanks,
Scott

We also had this happen to us last week.  We were running 2.6.3.1, but I updated the firmware to 2.7.3.1 on Friday, and after a power cycle, the problem cleared itself.  Then the daemon failed again early this morning (Monday).

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Ken

The 2.7.3.1 firmware doesn't resolve this issue. 
I just got these alerts tonight.

Now what do we do?  Is the battery user-replaceable? What's the part number?
If we have to reboot this thing, we don't want it to be down for long...

This is affecting performance, because it has enforced Write-Thru cacheing:

It is user replaceable.  Call in and we will get your old battery RMA'ed if it has failed.

Oh, you funny guy!  Have you ever tried calling D-Link technical support with this kind of question?  I have spoken over the past 90 minutes to a wide variety of young ladies in all parts of the globe, but no one is willing to allow me to purchase a new battery, although they all want to know my first and last name.  I am trying to send email to spareparts@dlink.com (one of the recommended options) as a last resort.  Maybe I can pop the cover and just see; it could be a stock battery I can get anywhere...

Thanks!

I am sorry you had such difficulties, which line did you call in under?

I have assumed that this is just a problem with the new firmware as it started after we applied the latest one.  Having had to go through the painful process of calling tech support for this product before, I was not so interested in going through it again.  At one point I was able to reach someone knowledgeable about the xStack, but the sheer number of calls I had to make to get different people before I found one who could route me to the correct group made me decide that calling for this was not really worth it.  Especially if it might get corrected with a firmware update in the not so distant future.

At one point, one of the people  I spoke with last August wanted us to spend an additional $1100.00 US to buy some sort of Enterprise Support Package before they would assist us.  I just kept calling back to get someone else on the phone, and eventually, I got routed to the storage folks and they were able to help us get the problem kind of fixed.  In fact, they were quite nice to work with once I was able to reach them.

The error went away on ours for a while (before I could figure out how to get D-Link to sell me a battery), so I gave up on them and went to the original manufacturer, iStor.  They have the batteries for about $35, answer their phone, and seem to be perfectly happy to sell parts.   Try support@istor.com.  The iStor part number for the DSN3200 is the "iS325."

The latest firmware (2.7.7.1) seems to have corrected our problem.  We are now and have been for some time in "Write Back" mode.
