I have a Dell poweredge 1900 Server, with a 4 hard drive array.
I am use to HP servers that have indicator lights to show if a hard drive in the array  has failed and is off line.  How does the PowerEdge do it or does it?

It does:

Solid green = disk is online/ready
Blinking green = disk activity
Blinking amber = disk failure
Alternating amber/green = online/predicted failure

Yes, OMSA can be used to interact and monitor disks in Dell servers, but there is an external/visual indicator like he describes on his HP servers.
