Usually if drive is reporting "predicted failure" I would ask Dell to
send me a new drive ASAP and not delay things any further.

Kind Regards

I would have you restart all OMSA services (
restart) then re-run the omreport command and verify that the drive
still does/does not show the predictive failure.

I have a new disk in a 2650 due t a failure. The array rebuilt just 
fine, but I show that it's predicted to fail:

# omreport storage pdisk controller=0 pdisk=1:4
Hard Disk 1:4 on Controller PERC 3/Di (Embedded)

Can this be assumed accurate and if so do I request a new drive due to 
smart errors?
