major warning event code=204 in VA7100

I have a VA7100 with 6 18GB disks, yesterday i added 2 36GB disks. I ran the armdsp command and both disks appear to be good but in the
syslog appear the fallowing warnings:

MAJOR WARNING Event Code=204; Description One o More Disks have failed.; Unknown FRU location; Hardware Address = /0/7/0/0.8.0.110.0.0 ;Unknown Vendor ID; Unknown Model ID; Unknown Product S/N

MINOR WARNING Event Code=265; Description One or More Disks may belong to a different disk set; Unknown FRU location; Hardware Address = /0/7/0/0.8.0.110.0.0 ;Unknown Vendor ID; Unknown Model ID; Unknown Product S/N

CORRECTED: Event Code=265; Description=CORRECTED One or More Disks may belong to a different disk set; this previously ocurring event has been corrected.

the HP web site says for event 204 that what it means is that the disk has been found to be not good by the array controller and sugest to replace the disks.

I have a couple of questions:

1) Why does the armdsp command says that both disks are good and why the syslog says otherwise ?.

2) Is safe to use the space just added to the array ?.

This is the armdsp output:

Disk at M/D7:

Any help i would apreciate, thanks for your time.
