HPE SmartCarrier lights not right

Hi, apologies in advance...

We have a DL360e Gen8 with 4x 450gb 15K SAS drives from Hitachi. They must be 100% compatible as there are no errors anywhere regarding this. One of them shows as amber, which indicates it's failed. Replacement has shown up today, but upon replacing the drives it goes straight back to amber but this time has the green ring going around constantly. Is this 'new' drive failing too, or is it rebuilding the RAID? iLO and the SSA still shows the drive as failed, but I haven't rebooted the server yet as it's a production server.

Should I wait longer, or presume this new drive is DOA/controller has failed. The other 3 drives are working fine in the degraded RAID1+0.

Thanks in advance. :)
