hi guys,

We have an IBM X3650 M3 server. It's got an orange exclamation mark on there.

Can you help me with what that light means? We have Esxi 5.5 installed on there. Can I somehow view the hardware logs of this host remotely?

Thanks
Yashy

What does the light relate to?  It could be one of the drives has an issue and needs replacing.

Thanks for the link. But then it doesn't say anything about the colour of the light? Or about what the exclamation mark means on the panel?

Orange means a drive is running and failing. Red means it is dead.
