On the DL 380 G2 server there is an orange light on the top right side of the server that stays orange and will not go back to the green status. What could that be? Help!

If its the very first light all the way at the top right, it means system health is degraded

View page 90 of the server manual for LED status:

Page 90 Shows you a diagram of the LEDs and underneath that picture explains what each one is.

Start from the top,
1 Internal Health
2 External Health
3 NIC1 link/activit
4 NIC2 link/activity
5 Front unit ID switch
6. system power

Oh apparently i had a different model of the server manual

But on page 97 of your manual it shows what the LEDs are so just look at which LED is amber and use chapter 5 to figure out whats going on.

Since you would have noticed any red lights on the disks when you saw the "degraded" led on the front it would be a good idea to look at the LEDs on the back, specifically those on the PSUs and NICs. If they look good it's probably a fan and you can slip the lid off and look at them as long as you don't leave the lid off too long to mess up the airflow.
