Dell MIBs

Hi Folks,

I have an issue where I have two separate MIBs that seem to have
overlaps in the events in them:

Dell Open Manage MIB:

<event>
        <mask>
                <maskelement>
                        <mename>id</mename>
                        <mevalue>.1.3.6.1.4.1.674.10892.1</mevalue>
                </maskelement>
                <maskelement>
                        <mename>generic</mename>
                        <mevalue>6</mevalue>
                </maskelement>
                <maskelement>
                        <mename>specific</mename>
                        <mevalue>1306</mevalue>
                </maskelement>
        </mask>
        <uei>uei.opennms.org/mib2opennms/alertRedundancyLost</uei>
        <event-label>MIB-Dell-10892 defined trap event:
alertRedundancyLost</event-label>


Dell Storage MIB:

<event>
        <mask>
                <maskelement>
                        <mename>id</mename>

<mevalue>.1.3.6.1.4.1.674.10893.1.20.200</mevalue>
                </maskelement>
                <maskelement>
                        <mename>generic</mename>
                        <mevalue>6</mevalue>
                </maskelement>
                <maskelement>
                        <mename>specific</mename>
                        <mevalue>1306</mevalue>
                </maskelement>
        </mask>
        <uei>uei.opennms.org/mib2opennms/alertRedundancyLost</uei>
        <event-label>StorageManagement-MIB defined trap event:
alertRedundancyLost</event-label>

As you can see the "id" field is different, but the "specific" value is
the same. When I get an event from a server with the specific event of
1306 per that server's event logs (in this case, pulling one of two
power supplies), it is flagged as both events in my SNMP trap alerting
software (I'm using OpenNMS). 

Can anyone explain why these two MIBs have the same specific values? 

Thanks, Tom
