Do you have SCSI or SAS?
Are they hot pluggable? If so, then you can just pull the damaged one out and slot in a new one.

If or not you need to turn the server off depends on if they are hotpluggable, but I have the identical server in my house with the Ultra SCSI's and they are, so you should just be able to push the little red tab and slide the drive out, and replace it with the new one, no power down necessary. Everything else should happen automatically!

The red light means the drive has failed and has been marked offline. Replace the drive by pushing the red tab and pulling the lever out. To put the new drive in simply unfold the lever on the drive and slide it back in until the lever folds flat again and locks into place. It will automatically resync.
