Take care since these warnings could possibly indicate that you have
error(s) with your current openmanage installation and/or problems with
your hardware firmware. That was the case for me since I had checking to
many irrelevant warnings and suddenly after 1-2 days I got the msg: "No
storage controllers found"

To suppress battery warnings you could use this option in
check_openmanage -b bat_charge=ALL
