Drobo

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.

Regards,

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.
