Flashing Amber indicator on Dell PowerEdge T420.

I'm not that familiar with Dell servers and their error codes. I have a client with a PowerEdge T420. The front LED indicators are showing a flash amber heartbeat indicator. Can someone tell me what this indicates and how to troubleshoot this (i.e. are there any logs generated, etc.)

Thanks in advance for the assistance with this.
