I have this strange output when querying the controller status; state is
degraded, but OK...

using check_openmanage from
http://folk.uio.no/trondham/software/check_openmanage.html
with these options

/usr/lib64/nagios/plugins/check_openmanage -o 0 --blacklist
ctrl_driver=0/ctrl_stdr=0 -d

   System:      PowerEdge M910
   ServiceTag:                                  OMSA version:    6.2.0
   BIOS/date:   1.1.7 05/25/2010         Plugin version:  3.5.10

....

In general the standard check (without -d but with the blacklist option, as
the driver release in RH EL 5 is a little behind the reccomended..) returns
ok.

So the question is
is it ok or not?
Entering directly into BIOS for the controller (Ctrl-C) gives Optimal as
state....

Is this a bug related with the text output....?
Thanks,
Gianluca
