Detecting DL380 Online spare

I am trying to detect online spares via SNMP, but it seems inconsistant. When querying large numbers of servers, several report they have no online spare. Upon running 'cpqacuxe' however, I find that SNMP is lying on some of these:

Server A
cpqacuxe -cli show:
Drive= 2:0,2:1,2:2,2:3,2:4
OnlineSpare= 2:5
SNMP:
(OID: .1.3.6.1.4.1.232.3.2.3.1.1.8.0.1)
enterprises.compaq.cpqDriveArray.cpqDaComponent.
cpqDaLogDrv.cpqDaLogDrvTable.cpqDaLogDrvEntry.
cpqDaLogDrvAvailSpares.0.1 = ""



Most of the time however SNMP and 'cpqacuxe' are in sync as in both of these cases:

Server B
cpqacuxe -cli show:
Drive= 2:0,2:1,2:2,2:3,2:5
OnlineSpare= 2:4
SNMP:
enterprises.compaq.cpqDriveArray.cpqDaComponent
.cpqDaLogDrv.cpqDaLogDrvTable.cpqDaLogDrvEntry.
cpqDaLogDrvAvailSpares.0.1 = Hex: 14

Server C
cpqacuxe -cli show:
Drive= 2:0,2:1,2:2,2:3,2:4
OnlineSpare= 2:5
SNMP:
enterprises.compaq.cpqDriveArray.cpqDaComponent
.cpqDaLogDrv.cpqDaLogDrvTable.cpqDaLogDrvEntry.
cpqDaLogDrvAvailSpares.0.1 = Hex: 15

Is there a different OID I should be using? Is there some data that is not being updated somewhere?

Running RHL7.3 DL380 G3/4s

Any assistance would be appreciated.

Re: Detecting DL380 Online spare

Restarting the SNMP Utilities (eventhough the server had recently been restarted) corrected this problem on 95% of the machines that were having issues.
