BBU Commands
The Storage Command Line Tool supports the following battery backup unit (BBU) commands:
storcli /cx/bbu show
storcli /cx/bbu show all
storcli /cx/bbu set bbuMode=<value>
storcli /cx/bbu set learndelayinterval=<value>
storcli /cx/bbu set powermode=sleep
storcli /cx/bbu set writeaceess=sealed
storcli /cx/bbu show modes
storcli /cx/bbu show properties
storcli /cx/bbu show status
storcli /cx/bbu start learn
The detailed description for each command follows.
storcli /cx/bbu show
This command shows the summary information for the BBU of a controller.
Input example:
storcli /c0/bbu show
storcli /cx/bbu show all
This command shows all the information of the BBU.
Input example:
storcli /c0/bbu show all
storcli /cx/bbu set bbuMode=<value>
This command sets the BBU mode for the BBU. The following table shows the various BBU modes:

Mode Description
0 48 hours of retentiona at 60 °C, 1-year Service Life.
a. Indicates how long the battery can hold data in the controller's memory in case of accidental system shutdown.
1 12 hours of retention at 45 °C, 5-year Service Life, transparent learn.b
b. The controller's performance is not affected during the battery's learn cycle.
2 12 hours of retention at 55 °C, 3-year Service Life, transparent learn.
3 24 hours of retention at 45 °C, 3-year Service Life, transparent learn.
4 48 hours of retention at 45 °C, 3-year Service Life.
5 48 hours of retention at 55 °C, 1-year Service Life.

storcli /cx/bbu set learndelayinterval=<value>
This command sets the learn delay interval for the BBU in hours. The value must be between 0 to 168 hours (7 days).
Input example:
storcli /c0/bbu set learnDelayInterval=30
storcli /cx/bbu set powermode=sleep
This command places the battery in low-power storage mode. The battery automatically exits this state after
5 seconds.
Input example:
storcli /c0/bbu set powermode=sleep
storcli /cx/bbu set writeaccess=sealed
This command seals the gas gauge EEPROM write access.
Input example:
storcli /c0/bbu set writeaccess=sealed
storcli /cx/bbu show modes
This command shows the bbu mode information that includes the bbu mode number, retention time, service life,
maximum temperature, and battery learn information.
Input example:
storcli /c0/bbu show modes
storcli /cx/bbu show properties
This command shows the BBU Learn properties for a controller.
Input example:
storcli /c0/bbu show properties
storcli /cx/bbu show status
This command shows the battery information, firmware status, and the gas gauge status.
Input example:
storcli /c0/bbu show status
storcli /cx/bbu start learn
This command starts the BBU learning cycle. The battery learn cycle is immediately started and no other parameters
are required for this command.
Input example:
