I have a firewire drobo (2gen) and I need 1.4.0 firmware - can anyone help?
I have an XP machine that it has been working just fine on for a long time. Now it does not want to boot any more. I have tried unplugging it it from the computer and powering it down and back up. I got it to boot and be seen on the system but after I restarted my system it no longer wants to boot. I have tried again and it seemed to be in a continually reboot but shutting down my system it stopped rebooting and has stayed off.
I was having horrible performance issues with OS X Lion and the Drobo 2nd Gen. I abandoned the Drobo and used another interim solution. Drobo released firmware version 1.4.1 on 10/25/11 (http://drobo.com/support/updates/firmware/Release... I gave it another shot and updated the firmware on the Drobo.
Bottom line, Firewire 800 performance on the Drobo is back to pre-Lion upgrade performance. If you are having issues, upgrade your firmware....
I tried to update Drobo 2nd gen. (Firewire) firmware via Firewire and USB, but it won't reboot after the installation. I am trying to go from 1.3.6 to 1.3.7 using Drobo Dashboard 1.7.3.
Does anyone have experience in using a drobo with the new Windows Home Server?
Hi Guys, just wondering if you could achieve slightly better performance out of a Drobo (2nd-gen) by using faster (10.000 rpm) or higher cache spec hard drives? (and maybe make them all the same?) It could well be the Drobo's operating system or FW800 connection is more of a bottleneck for performance then the drives, I don't know. Hope someone had experience with this or can share a little insight, thanx in advance!
Mine's backups are terrible slow. They usually take 15-20 minutes even if I didn't make any major changes - And I've got quality drives in there... It's connected using FW800....
iMac with Mac OS X 10.5.8, drobo dashboard 1.6.6, drobo 2nd gen connected via Firewire 800. I recently upgraded the drobo dashboard software to 1.6.6. Now everytime I wake up my iMac from sleep, drobo dashboard doesn't see the drobo being connected. OS X itself still recognize the drobo and can access it just fine. I have to quit and restart the drobo dashboard. Anybody have this issue? It's very annoying.
DroboShare automatic mounting seems to have been a bit spotty for a while now, but it looks like it's really, truly offline under Snow Leopard until a fix is released. Was trying to figure out why I couldn't get things mounted as usual, and came across this: http://support.datarobotics.com/app/answers/detail... Kind of sucky, especially considering how long Apple gave everyone during the beta period to get their stuff ready and working in SL. Fingers crossed for an expeditious fix!
