    DELL Server Blinking Red light

    All of a sudden we have a blinking red light on the back of our server (Poweredge 2900). The light is next to a number '2' and an information symbol.

    Does anyone know what this could be and how to stop it?

    Install the Dell Server Administrator software on the server and it monitors all the hardware for you. All you do is log into the web interface and it lists any faults. If you have several Dell servers it's generally good practice to have the Server Administrator installed on all of them, then put the Dell IT Assistant software on one server and it'll monitor all the rest and alert you via email of any hardware failures or predicted failures. You should never have to guess what a red light means.
