I just purchased an XServe RAID for $10 used. It wasn't sold as broken, but it was a no guarantee sort of thing. I have it powered on right now. The light in the top right corner of every drive caddy is red. There is currently one 40GB drive installed in drive 3. Unfortunately, it did not include the fiber card/cables, so I cannot test using a computer, and I am hesitant to purchase these when this may not work. Therefor, I would like to know: why it might be doing it, and some troubleshooting steps to fix it.

Thank you!
