I suggest  you  use megacli  utility instead megasasctl, megacli reports correct information.

Megasasctl utility doesn’t report proper information for latest PERC controllers.

Refer following URLs for more info on Megacli

just installed a Debian 7.0 Wheezy on a PowerEdge with a H710 Mini controller, and this is the output I get from megasasctl

a0       PERC H710 Mini           encl:1 ldrv:1  batt:FAULT, low voltage
a0d0       278GiB RAID 1   1x2  optimal
unconfigured:  a0e32s2   a0e32s3   a0e32s4
a0e32s0     279GiB  a0d0  online
a0e32s1     279GiB  a0d0  online

However, OMSA tells me that

# omreport storage battery controller=0
Battery 0 on Controller PERC H710 Mini (Embedded)

Controller PERC H710 Mini (Slot Embedded)
ID                        : 0
Status                    : Ok
Name                      : Battery 0
State                     : Ready
Recharge Count            : Not Applicable
Max Recharge Count        : Not Applicable
Predicted Capacity Status : Ready
Learn State               : Not Applicable
Next Learn Time           : Not Applicable
Maximum Learn Delay       : Not Applicable

is there a fix for megasactl? I have some script based on it to detect battery faults (cause it's more lightweight than OMSA and some old server didn't support OMSA) and I'd like to trust in them :)
