License warning alert

Hi all

I have an Operations Manager 4.0 server managing a two-node HA pair (FAS3150). The Ops Mgr software is licensed for two nodes and we are getting warning alerts that there are no free licenses - i.e. both licenses are in use. There is no problem with the licensing, it is licensed to monitor two nodes and it is monitoring two nodes as expected. How do I prevent or supress this alert?
