You can, in fact I believe $orkplace has just done so on a 2950. The
first google hit for "Enclosure 0:1:0 [Backplane] on controller 0 is
Degraded" implies that this may be to do with firmware versions
though. You might also want to find out what openreport command the
openmanage check is getting its information from and see if that has
any more details.
