Hard Drive Predictive Failure

I have a HP ProLiant server that is showing a drive status in the RAID manage Utility of “300 GB 2-Port SAS Drive at Port 1I : Box 1 : Bay 4 is predicted to fail soon”. In a case like this would the physical drive actually show an indication light by it just be a warning? Also by this being the case that it is a Warning should this drive just be swapped out?

Thank you,

If the drive is in predictive failure - if there's ANY QUESTION AT ALL that the drive is not good - why wouldn't you immediately replace it - ESPECIALLY on a server... sorry, I don't understand why this is a question...
