DL380G5 - can I get the hard disk light to blink to identify a drive?

First HP server. I'm used to Dell and IBM servers. They have utilities to blink one of the LEDs on a drive to identify it.

I can't seem to figure out how to do this on a DL380G5. I have 6 x SAS hot-swap drives.

Re: DL380G5 - can I get the hard disk light to blink to identify a drive?

One way is to use the Array Configuration Utility (assuming you are running windows and have the ProLiant Support Pack installed). Open this up (from Start; Programs;HP System Tools; HP ACU; HP ACU; run locally), selecting the array should make all disks in the array flash. Changing the view (in ACU) to physical will let you select the individual disk and then only that will flash.
Hope that helps, let me know if not clear enough.
