OMSA reports arrayDiskDellCertified as Not Certified but arrayDiskVendor as DELL

We have a Dell PowerEdge R815 server with a PERC H200 controller card in 
it. The H200 is connected to two Intel SSD's. Dell OMSA reports that the 
arrayDiskVendor is "DELL", but it also reports that 
arrayDiskDellCertified is 0 (Not Certified) and arrayDiskRollUpStatus 
and arrayDiskComponentStatus are reported as 4 (Non-critical). Despite 
this, the machine and the disks seem to be working perfectly fine.

Does anyone have an idea why Dell OMSA would report the arrayDiskVendor 
as "DELL" but also report arrayDiskDellCertified as "Not Certified"?

Here are some more details:

OS:               Ubuntu 10.04 LTS
Dell OMSA:        Version 6.5 from community repository
H200 firmware:
Intel SSD Model:  SSDSA2SH064G1GC

Here is what omreport tells us for one of the disks (the output for the 
other is similar):

We use identical SSD's in our Dell PowerEdge 2950's, also running Ubuntu 
10.04 LTS and Dell OMSA 6.5. However, those machines use PERC 6/I cards 
instead of the H200. On those machines, OMSA also reports 
arrayDiskVendor is "DELL", but it reports arrayDiskDellCertified as "Not 
Applicable" and arrayDiskRollUpStatus and arrayDiskComponentStatus are 
both reported as 3 (OK), which is good.

Thanks in advance for any help.
