We have a few DroboElite units and we are trying to replace some 2TB drives with 6TB.
Dashboard is 2.6.4, firmware is 2.0.6. Unit initially had 8 x 2TB drives, dual disk redundancy is enabled.
We pulled a 2TB drive from bay 1 and replaced it with a 6TB. The Drobo recognized the drive, but it didn’t indicate it was rebuilding, but the red light moved from bay 1 to bay 2. As we had dual disk redundancy, we pulled the second 2TB drive and replaced it with a 6TB as well. The red light has now moved back to the first 6TB drive, and it does not appear the Drobo is doing anything. When looking at the capacity line graph, it shows all the drives appropriately, but is not showing any extra usable space, just more space under ‘reserved for expansion’.
What to do now? We have 4 6TB drives (so 2 more), but don’t want to pull another as we’d lose data then.
Any help welcomed,
