Definition
1
Locate
Solid blue
The drive is being identified by a host application
Flashing blue
The drive carrier firmware is being updated or requires an update
2
Activity ring
Rotating green
Drive activity
OFF
No drive activity
3
Do not remove
Solid white
Do not remove the drive. Removing the drive causes one or more of the logical drives to fail
OFF
Removing the drive does not cause a logical drive to fail
4
Drive status
Solid green
The drive is a member of one or more logical drives
Flashing green
The drive is rebuilding or performing a RAID migration, stripe size migration, capacity expansion, or logical drive extension, or is erasing
Flashing amber/green
The drive is a member of one or more logical drives and predicts the drive will fail
Flashing amber
The drive is not configured and predicts the drive will fail
Solid amber
The drive has failed
OFF
The drive is not configured by a RAID controller
NOTE: When the SAS-enabled riser board with the Smart Array B320i Controller is installed in the server, the embedded Smart Array B120i Controller is disabled automatically. When this condition occurs:
  • Drives connected to the system board operate in AHCI or Legacy mode.
  • In AHCI or Legacy mode, drives cannot be a part of a hardware RAID or a logical drive.
  • The Locate, Drive status, and Do not remove LEDs of the affected drives are disabled
