Hard Drive Predictive Failures - Need them to register as critical events

I am trying to figure out how to force these events to be critical. If you look at the alerts in SIM they are coming through as Warning level events. Investigating the MIB settings for that alert it shows its utilizing cpqida.mib - cpqDaPhyDrvStatusChange - (SNMP) Physical Drive Status Change (3046) and the severity is already set to Critical. A quick investigation of all the Physical Drive Status Change mibs in the cpqida.mib shows all of them default to critical severity. If the MIB is set to critical, why is the alert coming through as a warning, and is there a way to force it to critical? Appreciate any help you can provide.

The severity of this trap is dynamically defined and depends on the value of cpqHoTrapFlags.

This Trap is not always critical. HPSIM reads the value from the agent passed in cpqHoTrapFlags and then decides

severity of the trap.

 

If you want this trap to be defined always as critical, please let me know.

if it helped, award me Kudos or Points. Thanks :)

Thanks for the reply, and yes I am looking for a way to set this trap to always be critical so it is handled by our automatic event handler and a ticket is opened for it.
