typically, that means that they are failed drives. However, I have seen
disks report that they are failed (when they are not) if jumpers have been
set on the disks. The backplane takes care of the SCSI ID's, so there should
be no reason to have any jumpers on the drives.

You might want to try updating the firmware on the drive(s) if it's
not jumper related.

Is the fault led also used to identify the location of a disk in a hot plug
backplane ? run smart start and see what smart start thinks is "wrong"
