R420 beeping constantly

I know my PERC battery is low/degraded and needs to be replaced - is there a way to silence the beeping coming from the server until I can replace it?  PE R420, idrac7 - the beeping is 2 beeps every 30 seconds or so.  I've tried looking through racadm and idrac GUI (which seems very slow for some reason) but didn't see a way to silence/acknowledge the beeps.  Any help greatly appreciated.

I believe it is possible to silence the alarm with OpenManage. If you access OpenManage and expand the storage section, select the controller, select  information/configuration from the top, then from the controller "Available Tasks" drop down you should see "Silence Alarm". Select that and then it should stop the alarm. 


Let me know if this helps.
