I posted earlier about a problem with a HP R3000XR that was showing
abnormally low charge a couple of days after replacing the battery pack.
For those with R3000XRs, the progblem seems to be:
(1) while you CAN hot-swap the battery-pack on an R3000XR, the UPS
automatically goes into bypass mode when you do so;
(2) it doesn't necessarily come OUT of bypass mode after you install the
new battery pack;
(3) while in bypass mode, it appears it DOES NOT charge the batteries.
A couple of days ago, I shut down all the machines on the UPS, powered
off the UPS for a couple of minutes, then brought everything back up.
The UPS brought the batteries back up to full charge and, so far, has
kept them within a couple of percentage points of full ever since
(charge level is fluctuating between about 98.3% and 100%).
So, it appears NUT doesn't have to recalibrate in any way after swapping
out a battery pack; but the UPS itself DOES need to reset.
