The server had some event, when I got to site 4 of the 6 drives where flashing amber. The monitor just had a flashing "-" at the top left.

I rebooted and it claimed it needed to rebuild one of the drives, so I let it. Now all the drives are green, except 1 or the 3 RAID5 array drives that is flashing green. Monitor is showing the same "-".

While I was composing this, the flashing drive is now normal, but the single driver and the 2 in a RAID1 are now showing solid amber [X].

For clarity:
Drives 0/1/2 are RAID5 (3x146GB SCSI 15k).
Drive 3 is standalone (36GB).
Drives 4/5 are RAID1 (2x300GB SCSI 10k)
The RAID5 is the Windows Server booting array.

What can I deduce from the above?
