5n2 does not show on desktop and dashboaard can't see it

I am running MacOS Monterey 12.1 on an 2019 iMac cat6 connected to the 5n2 drobo.
I have reinstalled dashboard but it can never find my 5n2. anyone have any thoughts on this?
If I go into my HD iit shows as a connected device in locations and I can access it from there.
TIA
