It has 3 LEDs on the front as far as the manual says, http://bizsupport1.austin.hp.com/bc/docs/support/SupportManual/c00172836/c00172836.pdf.

You can actually read the event log from the front using the round button press top and bottom to scroll. SIM should see it OK through either of the hosts through the Smart Array controllerit's connected to. ADU and ACU will also help.

if you scroll down page 29
Front Panel Components.
between #3 and #4 there are two LEDs, the one on the top is showing solid amber.
I amnot sure what it is about?

Controller LEDs on page 39. If that's red there should be an error message on the display. It doesn't necessarily mean it is currently faulty, it goes on and off dependant on the message in the display window, so scroll down to the last message on the display panel and see what that says.

Yes, the error will be displayed on the little screen. The LED changes as per the screen display, which is why you must scroll through it. scrolling up several times may display an error that was cleared ages ago, and that would make the LED go red/amber even though there was no current fault.

I kept pushing the button that controls the display, it reset the display and the amber light was gone.
