Dell Powervault 200S. Two drives are flashing amber

Dell Powervault 200S. Two drives are flashing amber and I can't see the data. Can I just swap out those drives one at a time and will that possibly solve my problem.

Wow, that's old. It's only a dumb enclosure so you should run OMSA and look under storage to see the status. It's probably connected to a PERC in the server, It may be possible to force a failed disk online but it has to be the last one to fail so please don't pull anything out unless you have a good backup.

the LEDs are listed at https://downloads.dell.com/manuals/common/powervault-lvd-200s_user%27s%20guide_en-us.pdf on page 6-4 . but there is no drawing of the caddy so I can't tell you how to find out which LED is flashing.
