Small server outage for performance improvement

Server messages
Today I had to take the server offline to test a salvaged P400 RAID controller. Although the components were not in use for a really long time, a low battery charge seems to be the only issue so far. A SFF8484 to SATA cable is on the way to be able to harvest the advantages, which includes improved data transfer speeds (lower page load times) and complete data redundancy.
And it actually looks funny - a server-grade RAID controller battery in a MicroServer... takes a LOT of space :) This is a temporary state to confirm the battery health: once the backplane has been rewired, the battery will also be mounted properly.
