Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Check out the HP ProLiant support page. There is a table that explains what the color lights mean and it varies from a steady to blinking amber light (fault light)  and the status of the other light (on line).

For swapping out the drives, check out this link

    After 5 years. so what measures that you taken if that situation happen? If there is a disaster recovery procedure? If you don't know the recovery process, so how did you maintain for 5 years?

    This situation is not just  a simple net searching. It depends of your data/ information. So be cautious. It is better to ask HP for more help.
