Question about Dell PowerEdge 1800 Server
That's just a system indicator flash. Solid blue means on and normal, blinking means someone either turned on the system indicator in the management software or bumped the indicator switch on the back of the server. This was designed to make easier transitions from back to front when working with multiple servers in a rack. To turn the indicator off, just go to the back of the server and find the Ethernet and usb ports that are together. If the usb is the bottom and Ethernet port is the top then just to the right you should see a small blue blinking light and a button, pushing the button wil turn the blinking off.
Again, no worries this is just a "locator beacon" not an error message, if the light ever blinks yellow then you have an issue.
Hope this helps FixYa,

Mine on a PowerEdge 840 will blink amber when the front panel is removed. Intrusion detection. When I am working on it I place a piece of tape on the front button and it turns blue and stops that stuff.
