I have a Supermicro 4U server with 40+ HDDs. I used spanned volumes as I don't need data protection. one of the volume is failing and I'm trying to locate the hard drive to replace. is there a way to make the faulty drive blink like in Ubuntu/Linux? any help would be appreciated. thanks!

try this

drive=sdb1
while true; do sudo dd if=/dev/${drive} of=/dev/null ; sleep 3 ; done

Why on Earth are you running Windows 10 on a 40+ HDD server?
