Amber light on hard drive will not stop blinking

I have a Proliant DL380 G3 and during a routine walkthrough of the server room I noticed two hard drives with blinking amber lights. There seems to be nothing wrong with the drives, the firmware is up to date, no errors in the ADU or Insight Diagnostics. Could I possibly just have a bad backplane or system board?

What says IML log ? maybe the prefailure diagnostics has noticed too much errors.

Blinking indicate degraded.
So the drives has exceeded some thresholds, or appear to have a eminent failure.
