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?

Use the Dell Open Manage Server Administrator software to identify failed drives on Dell poweredge servers

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.
