HP Health monitor - Upper warning limit wrong?

Is the logic for "Fans broken" and "Fault tolerant fans broken" in the HP healt sensor possibly incorrect?

The "Upper warning limit" is set to 0 and the help text states "Values above this limit will set the sensor status to 'Warning'." Yet the value for "Fans broken" _is_ 0 (not above) and the sensor state is "warning" nonetheless.

Hello lheide,

Thank you very much for your post.

By default, the channel limits for "Fault Tolerant Fans Broken" as well as for "Fans Broken" are equally set to:
Upper Warning Limit (#): 0

Do I understand you correctly, that your sensor channel "Fans Broken" is currently "0", but the sensor is in a Warning state regarding a fan issue though?
If so, please restart the HP system once and deploy the sensor again to check if the issue can be reproduced.

What's the result?

Best regards,
Sebastian

My problem was already resolved, sorry for the inconvenience. I wanted to edit the post to reflect that but the system always threw an error when I tried, so I gave up trying to edit it. You can delete this post if you like. It would have been very convenient if I could have deleted it as long as there was no reply but I could not find that option.

Thank you for your help.
