Are one of my hard drives bad? DL380 G4

I have a DL380G4 with 6 hard drives. I created a RAID 5 logical drive and added all 6 drives. But only 5 display when I view the logical drive. And while viewing the drives within the logical drive, my last drive start blinking amber as if it were bad. But when I exit the utility the light goes back to green.

I've attached a screen shot below. As you can see, only 5 drives are listed even though I added all 6.

Any ideas?

The sixth drive should be there as well in the raid5 array. If you scroll down on the drive list box, "Assigned Physical Drives", you will see it.
Based on the size of the logical drive 339.2GB *all six* drives are in use.

As to why the light is blinking, the array software probably has turned on the identity light on the drive. You need to go in the array utility and highlight the drive and turn off the identity light.
