After you fix the problem that triggered the LEDs initially, shutdown the server and then pull the power cords for a few seconds.  Plug them back in and the LEDs should be out.  This is the way I've solved the same issue.

I would run Dell's preinstalled diagnostic software to determine what the problem is, the leds are their for the specific reason to let you know when the system has detected a hardware problem.  Check the power supplies first, the most common problem I run into.  The diagnostic software will guide you to the problem though.  Hope that helps :)

I had my led flashing because of some internal error, and dell had to send me a utility via email, only available thru them, to reset it.

odd, but it only happened once.

i think dell server administrator will disregard it too if you run t hru and validate the error there

Might want to clear your error log.  The flashing lights may actually not be indicating a true problem and can be resolved by clearing the logs.

Hope this Helps!!!

did the follow things and it worked clear logs and then reboot,  but some of our servers are production so this may not be an option without a schedule window,   Is there a way to do it without a reboot.

I'm not aware of a way to clear the log without the reboot BUT even if a way exist I think it would be MUCH better to reboot the system.  As indicated above, Many possibilities exist that could cause this problem and letting the system go through the boot process should better confirm the fix.  It would be awful to have a valid problem and clearing the log results in it being ignored.

Hope this Helps!!!
