DL20 Gen10 - NVMe - High fan speed

I currently have a problem with my DL20 Gen10, when using a non-HPE NVMe M.2 SSD.

I have installede the dedicated iLO card, and when installing the NVMe M.2, the fans run close to 100%.

Advisory: HPE ProLiant DL20 Gen10 Or HPE ProLiant ML30 Gen10 Server - Fan Speed May Increase on a ProLiant DL20 Gen10 Or ProLiant ML30 Gen10 Server When Non-HPE Supplied M.2 Drive(s) Are Attached to the System

HPE's customer advisory explaines the issue, but the thing is that the iLO dosen't read the temp, and shows it as N/A, but the Smart Array controller reads the M.2 temp just fine?!?

Is there a solution?

I would request you update the server with the latest Agentless Management Service & ILO 5 from the below link or the server should be updated with the latest bios and all other firmware.

Agentless Management Service for Windows x64

Please let me know if you have any queries.
