Dell PowerEdge 2650 Server with OpenManage - orange light is blinking but when I go into OpenManage everything looks okay... why is the orange light blinking?

I have a Dell PowerEdge 2650 Server running Server 2003.  It has Dell OpenManage installed.  The light on the front cover is blinking orange but when I go into OpenManage everything looks okay... why is the orange light blinking?

Thanks

Doug

Openmanage needs to be setup correctly to catch all the alerts. If that isn't the case you might get an error code without openmanage knowing about the error. Often you'll also get such an error code if you have set up a server with a single PSU which actually normally has 2 PSU's. This might have been forgotten when configuring openmanage.

try this :
Goto Open OpenManage Application and select Sever Administrator. It will ask you to input your server password and will allow you log in. Selcet Logs and from there clear the logs.
and this how to use Openmangment and install it in the right way ... mybe you forget something :
