Local Disk Locator LED Status
The local disk locator LED is located on the slot where you insert the local disk. This LED identifies where a specific disk is inserted in a blade or rack server. The locator LED is useful for maintenance, when you need to remove a disk from among many disks in a server.
You can successfully turn on or off the local disk locator LED when:
The server is powered on. UCS Manager generates an error if you attempt to turn the locator LED on or off when the server is powered off.
The CIMC version is UCS Manager 3.1 or higher.
The RAID controller supports the out-of-band (OOB) storage interface.
When Intel Volume Management Device (VMD) for NVMe is enabled, you can also configure blinking patterns for the LEDs on NVMe-managed devices to show drive status. VMD-enabled drives identified by a failure ID blink pattern can be hot-plugged without a system shutdown.
