VA7410 controller link down

HPUX 11i. We lost power for a very long time the other day, and when the server came back up I see the following error in the syslog:

Sep 13 02:53:24 rico syslog: CVSDM; INFORMATION Event Code=400; Description=542:
BACKEND_LINK_DOWN_EH A disk interface has been down for longer than the time all
owed for normal recovery. Array function will continue without use of this chan

I have attached the armdisp output, that controller comes back with a good status just that it is not online. Is there a safe way to clear this error while the array is up to get the link back up?

The error is erroneous in my case.
