Can you be more specific? Are you talking about a piece of software called "Amber Light" or an actual light on a computer somewhere? If it is on a computer, what kind of computer (what it means could be different on every different model of hardware). We need a WHOLE bunch more information to be able to answer your question.

Let us know

Thank you. I'm talkign about actual light on the server. It is a HP box, how can I find the exact version? Is there any command that I can use to find what model of HP?

if it's running Linux you can get info using lshw. You may have to install lshw if it's not there already.
dmidecode may also work.
