    There is no cache battery on this raid card, this is super capacitors. 

    Do you have an error in WRKPRB ? If you have 2 cards you may be have a failing card, or failing capacitor, data are not cached in memory and are read write directly to the disk. Like When card have cache battery.

    Ding ding ding! Virgile wins!  It's super capacitors!

    From the ticket:

    REPORTING SERIAL: YL10UE645049 (Based on the serial number this is a topaz card 2016 / May)

    -

    There is a brief window of time when the Super Capacitors are charging and if the Super Capacitor status is checked during the brief window of time, the problem occurs.

    For adapters manufactured before 4th quarter 2019, the adapter needs to be replaced although the adapter firmware needs to be installed through the PTFs listed. If a new adapter with the Diamond capacitor is installed in the managed system, these PTFs ensure the new adapter also gets the new microcode update.

    The adapter firmware installs with a system IPL or with an IOP reset of the adapter.

    Adapter firmware level 19512C00 is provided by the following Hyper IBM i PTFs:

    MF69409 for release 720

    MF69402 for release 730

    MF69408 for release 740

    MF69410 for release 750
