HP SIM - get fibre channel status change errors on a server that doesn't even use fibre. Any ideas?

HP System Insight Manager - get fibre channel status change errors on a server that doesn't even use fibre.  Any ideas?  Never seen such an alert from this server before.  I'm not only concerned about preventing false alarms, but I'm curious why it would suddenly decide to say something is down that was never there.  Puzzling!

What type of server is generating the alarm?
Does it have a fibre card just not in use?
Depending on the agent version, one can set the agent to not monitor the fibre.  (The agent may need to be switched from WBEM to SNMP to get the icon in Control Panel.

Could try logging on to the managed server and from Control Panel (if it is a windows OS) and open the HP agents UI.
From the Active Agents column select the Fibre Array then the Remove button to the Inactive Agents column.
