HP ML530 G2 No cylinder icon on disks?


Came across a ML530 G2 which had a single SCSI disk installed with no protection, so in order to give it some redundancy before we move its applications to a new server, I inserted another SCSI disk of the same speed and capacity (While it was switched on) and created a RAID 1 software mirror...

The disk appears to be fine and the arrow LED on the disk mirrors the original disk in terms of accesses, but it does not have a green LED on the cylinder icon??

What does this mean exactly, as the original disk has this LED illuminated?? But the disk seems fine?!
