If the server no longer automatically displays the correct date and time, you may need to replace the battery that provides power to the real-time clock.

WARNING:  The computer contains an internal lithium manganese dioxide, a vanadium pentoxide, or an alkaline battery pack. A risk of fire and burns exists if the battery pack is not properly handled. To reduce the risk of personal injury:

To remove the component:

  1. Power down the server.
  2. Extend or remove the server from the rack (Extend the server from the rack, Remove the server from the rack).
  3. Remove the access panel.
  4. Remove the PCI riser cage.

    CAUTION: To prevent damage to the server or expansion boards, power down the server and remove all AC power cords before removing or installing the PCI riser cage.

  5. Remove the battery.

    Removing the battery

    IMPORTANT: Replacing the system board battery resets the system ROM to its default configuration. After replacing the battery, reconfigure the system through RBSU.

To replace the component, reverse the removal procedure.
