I've no idea.  How does this affect my issue?  Note that I was able to download and install perccli, which was able to initiate a learn cycle.  So, what gives with OMSA 9.1.0?

To tell you the truth I'm having lots of issues with 9.1.0.  At the moment, all four of my R640s with this PERC in them claim the battery is "Missing" after an OS reboot.  I have to log in and restart the OMSA services to get omreport to see the battery again.  This issue is open with Dell at the moment.

Isn't this card equipped with NV Cache?

I'm trying to trigger the learn cycle on a PERC H740P Mini and getting the following:

# omconfig storage battery action=startlearn controller=0 battery=0
Operation disabled. Read, action=startlearn
Refer to the documentation for more information.

Any clue as to why?  It's happening on at least four R640s recently purchased.  I'm running OMSA 9.1.0.
