I’ve just rebooted my Drobo-Fs ( after vi-ing with the /etc/hostname, /etc/resolv.conf and /etc/init.d/net_config files. Tried to make it answer it’s dns name… no success there)
Anyway - I gave up, and rebooted it (through the Dashboard button). Came back after 30 minutes. All Disk Leds are Green. but I can’t get to the drobo. No file shares. No ssh (get connection refused). go Dashboard access. Ping by IP works.
I was starting to think it might be something bigger than bad conf files… I’m on email support from Drobo (since they no longer have a rep in Israel) and was asked to remove the power cable from the drobo for a few hours so that it’s internal battery would die. Did it for a whole night it didn’t help…
no, I didn’t. I followed the Drobo support team advise and managed to get a hold of another DroboFS (it was a loan and cost me quite a few $$$). All I wanted was to get my data. The result of putting my disks in the loaned drobo - IT WAS BRICKED ALSO!!! even putting it’s original disks back didn’t help! So now I’ve got to bricked DroboFS and no DATA.
