Ligh status on DL165 SAS Harddrives

i have a simple question. We just bought two DL165 G6 serves with SAS hardrives.
On one disk there is a orange light turned on. On all other disk there is just the green light flashing from time to time.
My question is, is this orange light indicating some kind of problem? Or why is it turned on only on one disk?

get the disk model nr go hp .com search

search under drivers and firmware with hp disk model nr not spare number,, model has this type of format BF14684970

find firmware update if it work fine if not

then do the following
