From the Service Manual:

I/O Subsystem (SAS/DVD/HDD)
Verifying SAS Disk Drive Operation
Each SAS disk drive has an activity LED indicator on the front of the drive.
NOTE: On the HP Integrity rx2660 server, only the activity LED is used. The status LED is not
monitored by the OS.
Verify that the LED shows the correct activity indication for all disk drives that you installed:
1. Turn on power to the server and display monitor.
2. During the boot sequence, watch the activity LED on each SAS disk drive:
â ¢ Activity LED: The LED quickly cycles from amber to green. The LED stays solid green
until the drive spins up.
3. If the activity LED stays illuminated solid green on any SAS disk drives (after the drive spins
up), the drive may not be seated correctly. Check installation as follows:
a. Turn off the server power button and unplug the AC power cords and any cables.
b. Re-seat all of the SAS disk drives installed in the server.
c. Reconnect the AC power cords and any cables. Restart the server to determine whether
the LEDs now become illuminated during the boot. If not, contact your reseller.
4. Use the EFI Shell info io command to check the SCSI drives.
