5N Mount issues After reboot

My drives appear to be fine, but when I boot up I get a “Mount Failed” error.
If I were to shutdown, pull out the drives, re-flash with current firmware (its already up to date), shutdown, install drives, power on, it should find my pack again, right?

I’ve had similar issues with my DroboFS, after I played around with the filesystem a little too much via SSH. I did exactly what you said and everything worked. Even if your Drobo is a “new device” to your disk pack, it’s the identical procedure your use to migrate disk packs from one 5N to another.

Thanks. I reached out to support to see if they recommend this method. Diags seem OK to me. I’m just nervous about the data being lost.

Since I didn’t have dropBear installed drobo support sent me firmware with SSH enabled.
Was able to get access to data after it was applied.

Glad to hear you got it sorted!

Just for future reference, did you install Dropbear as a DroboApp or did you apply a new firmware with Dropbear included?

Actually they had SSH enabled on the firmware by default because I didn’t have DropBear installed already.
