No Alarm on fan failure

We have been doing some alarm testing and noticed that we dont get an error on removal of a single fan.

We get an error if we remove a second fan.

Is the system aware that the fan has been removed and not "failed"?

Ideally we want to be made aware of any item removal or failure (even if the current situation is not impacting perfromance etc) so we can resolve the problem straight away.

Hi,
What is the server (or device) model number which you are referring to?
