Drive predictive failure in Dell server, how to figure out which drive it is


I have an old Dell PowerEdge 1850, and according to messages, I have a predictive drive failure, see below.

Code:
Server Administrator: Storage Service EventID: 2094  Predictive Failure reported:  Physical Disk 0:1 Controller 0, Connector 0
My only problem is, I don't know how to tell which drive it's actually talking about. The server has two internal drives, then there's an array hanging off of it. None of the drives' lights are flashing, so I'm not sure how to tell based off that info in messages.

What RAID controller is in it? You can usually use the tools to get a better idea, and they usually have a 'blink' option so you can tell which is which. My guess would be the first drive, but that is only a guess.

If you can bring the server offline, you can also just reboot it, and go into the RAID bios, and see what you can do from there.

Yeah, that's my problem, I can't take it offline yet, was hoping to figure it out before that. and i'm not having any luck figuring out how to blink whatever 0:1 is, but i'm fairly certain it's one of the drives in the server itself. There's only 2 drives, but I don't know if the first drive is 0:0 or 0:1, or how that relates to looking at the server when standing in front of it.

I think those are LSI - you can probably use megacli. Here's a guide someone put together for blinking a drive:

Thanks, I'll check it out. LSI does sound familiar with this one, hopefully this does the trick.
