Dell PowerEdge R710 running Windows Server 2008r2 RAID Drive Warning Lights

This server's roll is Web Server (IIS). It has a RAID 5 configuration with 6 drive bays and 6 drives with this types of drives:

(0) SAS 300 GB 15k

(1) SAS 300 GB 15k

(2) SAS 300 GB 15k

(3) SAS 300 GB 15k

(4) SAS 600 GB 15k (This one is flashing Green then Amber) I have already replaced the drive and got the same Green then Amber warning after the replacement

(5) SAS 600 GB 15k

How do I determine what is wrong with this drive bay if replacing the drive doesn't resolve the problem.

Can anyone guide me to a diagnostic tool that may provide more detailed information on the problem?

Hello.

(4) SAS 600 GB 15k (This one is flashing Green then Amber) I have already replaced the drive and got the same Green then Amber warning after the replacement

The drive is in a predictive failure state and replacing requires that  the drive first be taken offline. Review the controller logs for more information. You can run hardware diagnostics including the hard drive using the LifeCycle Controller (LCC). To enter the LCC, use F10 key during POST to run diagnostics.
