Hello All,

I'm receiving email notifications from HP SIM 5.0 with the following content:
Subject: ATA Disk Drive Status Change (14004)

ATA Disk Status Change. This trap signifies that the agent has detected a change in the status of an ATA disk drive. The variable cpqIdeAtaDiskStatus indicates the current disk drive status. User Action: If the physical drive status is smartError(3) or failed(4), replace the drive.

If I verify the ATA Disk Status, I find the following:
ATA Disk Status. This is the status of the ATA disk.      other

On the server itself, in the event log there is the following Information shown:
Source: Storage Agents        Event ID: 1186
IDE ATA Disk Status Change.  The ATA disk drive with model Maxtor 6Y080L0 and serial number Y25KZ1MA has a new status of 1.
(ATA disk status values: 1=other, 2=ok, 3=smartError, 4=failed)

What does the disk status 1(other) mean?
How can I modify the HP SIM System to stop notifying me such information?
This happens on different monitored systems.

Details of monitored system:
HP DL320 G2
Windows Server 2000
HP SupportPack 7.6

We're using HP SIM 5.0 SP5
