I'm too lazy to look up the LEDs, but my guess the RAID is degraded.  The disk that is solid was bounced from the array because it sent out a predictive failure.   You are flying w/o a parachute, get so much as a bad block, and you lose data.  
 * Source a replacement drive ASAP
 * Kick of full backup
 * Turn it off (best practices) until you have replacement drive.

The event listed means the drive is likely to fail although it hasn't failed yet, however there is updated firwmare for that drive to address problems where it may become unresponsive - http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/Document.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&taskId=115&prodSeriesId=1121516&prodTypeId=15351&objectID=c01186030 (and there's probably later firmware than that as well).

That only addresses the drive that hasn't failed yet though, with two drives flashing you've got one good one, one failed and one flakey by the looks of it, so it's quite possible to swap the flakey one instead of the failed one first which will leave you with a dead server.

Since you've only posted one event message and you've got two drive issues by the sound of it more information is needed. Please run Array Diagnostic Utility and post output as an attachment (don't paste into thread it's very long) so we can tell which drive to change first. You should also look at the integrated management log which you can access through the Systems Management Homepage, that will show what the POST error was that happened in August.

Obviously you should backup but presumably you do that every day anyway.
