Dl160 G5 Non-Hot Swap Port Identification

I have a DL 160 G5 for with four Non-Hot-Swap hard drives driven by an E200 controller. The Storage Manager reports a failed hard drive at Port 1.

How do I identify the physical drive to replace that corresponds with controller Port 1 so that I replace the correct hard drive?

Or better yet, how do I identify the drive position in the chassis of each hard drive, that coincides with all four of the controller ports (Port 0, Port 1, Port 2, Port 3.)

No external lights on these drives to indicate the failed drive. Is there a definitive way to define the failed drive, or the position of the failed drive as indicated in the array controller management hardware.

Usually they go left to right 0 - 7 on eight drive enclosure. Boot the diagnostics from smart start, it might help find it.
