What is the function of the Unit ID LED and switch at the back of the ML370?

Does it automatically lights up?

Re: What is the function of the UID LED and switch?

It's just to help you identify what machine you're working on. Imagine a server room with a few dozen servers. Via Insight Manager you can set the Unit ID LED to quickly identify a machine you'd like to do something with. Or imagine a rack filled with "pizza box" servers. In stead of counting the 7th from above - or was it the 8th? - you just switch it on at the front, walk to the back of the rack, and Aha: that's the one I need to disconnect.
