The aim of this paper is to study compact Riemannian manifolds $(M,\,g)$ that admit a non-constant solution to the system of equations $$-\Delta f\, g+Hess f-fRic=\mu Ric+\lambda g,$$ where $Ric$ is the Ricci tensor of $g$ whereas $\mu$ and $\lambda$ are two real parameters. More precisely, under the assumption that $(M,\,g)$ has zero radial Weyl curvature, this means that the interior product of $\nabla f$ with the Weyl tensor $W$ is zero, we shall provide the complete classification for the following structures: positive static triples, critical metrics of volume functional and critical metrics of the total scalar curvature functional.
