Dell OMSA clear hardware changes

Have a Dell server with a PV220s on it in split-bus mode. It is working fine but some time in the past the disks had been moved and are still showing up in the old positions on the "hardware changes" tab under OMSA. How do I acknowledge the hardware change so the old disks do not show up with red Xs against them?

Here's a pic...unwanted red Xs

I assume the OMSA is just reporting what the Perc controller is telling it.  Have you already been into the Perc controller setup when the system boots, and looked to see whether there is still a broken array on Channel 0?  (I suspect that is where you'll need to remove the broken configuration.)

OMSA doesn't show anything wrong on the storage tab which I would think is the same in the the boot setup screens.

I apologize, I misunderstood what part of the program you were in when you received the error.  You're looking for the button to acknowledge the hardware changes, and the button is not evident.  Obviously, it is suppose to be there.  The documentation says it is suppose to be there.

Two possible suggestions:
  Try hitting the page with a different browser.  (I've had problems in the past with the OMSA page... switching between IE and Firefox will frequently exhibit non-overlapping issues.)
  Try upgrading OMSA on that server to a newer version.

Still don't know what caused it, maybe both paths should have been connected but too dangerous to play with it using live data.
