Your server has a special type of memory that maintains the date, time, and configuration information for
built-in features. The system board battery keeps this information active when you turn off the server.
The system board battery normally requires no charging or maintenance throughout its life; however, no
battery lasts forever. If the system board battery fails, the date, time, and configuration information, including
passwords, are lost. An error message is displayed when you turn on the server.
Be sure to consider the following information when you replace the battery in the server:
• You must replace the battery with a lithium battery of the same type from the same manufacturer.
• To avoid possible danger, be sure to read and understand the following safety statement.
• After you replace the system board battery, you must reset passwords, system date and time, and
reconfigure the server.
When replacing the lithium battery, use only Part Number 33F8354 or an equivalent type battery
recommended by the manufacturer. If your system has a module containing a lithium battery, replace
it only with the same module type made by the same manufacturer. The battery contains lithium and
can explode if not properly used, handled, or disposed of. Do not:
