PERC 6/i: PD is not a certified drive

I just got a 2950 with a PERC 6/i. Two of the disks are 250G, model WDC
WD2502ABYS. Four of them are 1T, model WDC WD1002FBYS. When the system
boots I get 4 errors from the controller complaining that the four TB
drives are not certifid.

I didn't buy the 4x1TB drives from dell, but they are the same series of
the 250G ones, WD RE3. Does anyone know whether this is going to be
a problem? Maybe a new verson of OMSA will fix it?

Checking the status of the vdisk and pdisk with omreport doesn't show
anything weird.
