Cache Disable Code Permanent Disable Battery Not Supported (0x0019)
What does this code mean, and how do I get the cache on the controller enabled?

Cache Battery Count 1 (0x01)
The GUI tool confirms that:
Cache Backup Power Source: Batteries
Battery/Capacitor Pack Count: 1
Battery/Capacitor Status: OK
but it also indicates that the cache is permanently disabled:
Cache Status Permanently Disabled
Cache Status Details Cache disabled; run a diagnostic report for details.

What does the ADU report show under the array acceleration section?
Attach the full ADU report.
Try reseating the cache module. Be careful, you must shutdown and power off the server, remove the P410, remove the battery and then reseat the cache module. Put everything back in reverse order and ensure all components are firmly inserted.
You may have to replace the cache module.

The messages I quote are from the diagnostic report generated by the ACU's "diagnostics" tab, and the ACU UI directly, as I believe I've indicated in my previous points.
I hope that the firmware is updated, too; we took delivery of the server just yesterday.
I'm not sure how the linked KB article is relevant; I'm not getting an error at POST. I'm sorry if I wasn't clear about that.
I opened the machine and reseated the connectors. To me, everything looks fine; the card is solidly in its slot and screwed- down. The cable is connected at the battery and at the controller card. The controller card is deeply seated in its SIM slot.
I'm sorry, but "just choked" doesn't sound like a very insightful diagnosis.

Do you know if you are using 650 mAh P-Series Battery and the battery module is connected via a cable through connector on the back of the controller?
I would also check the LEDs status of the controller.
FYI- The current controller firmware is 2.50. The current is 2.72 which "Critical" status from HP. So you may need to update the firmware down the line.

I suppose I can udpate the firmware, but nothing in the change list indicates it addresses issues with the battery so it seems surprising you'd recommend it.
I discovered the problem: the machine was incorrectly built by HP or our VAR. The P400 card was connected to the P410 battery (part 462976-001), and the P410 card was connected to the P400 battery (part 398648-001). The P400 appears tob e happy with the P410 battery, but the P410 detects the P400's battery model as incompatible and shuts down its features.
Externally, the batteries look identical except for the part number.

The firmware information was a FYI since it's is decleated "Critical" by HP and not a resolution for the problem and I read the release notes and realised that the issue is not related to firmware in anyways.

Discovered that the accelerator cache was disabled on DL380 G6 with P410i controller. During post, the following message appeared: Cache permanently disabled. Backup to flash memory failed.
Replaced accelerator cache board and battery with no changed. Tried to reset cache by removing drives, booting, reseating drives and restarting again. Still no luck.
Problem turned out to be flash memory on integrated controller. Replaced motherboard and problem is resolved.
