Dell Disk light blinking green and amber regardless of the disk

BMaenpaa used Ask the Experts™
Dell Server Drive blinking green/amber alternately regardless of what drive in install in that bay..
I know this is suppose to be an indicator of impending failure, but why does it blink this way when I install a replacement?
I tried resetting the adapter to factory, and that worked for a little while, but then reverted to this behavior again.
I have another bay to use, but just curious if someone else had seen this before.
Thanks as always.
