Got the Drobo up and running along with a Droboshare. Formatted HFS+ since I may also use to direct connect to an iMac.
Anyhow, after enabling apps using the Dashboard, Drobo setup the DroboApps folder. So far so good. Next, I load the Admin Utility from the forums and copy the file (drobo-utils_0.6.0-1tar.gz) to the DroboApps folder (Y:\DroboApps filepath from a Windows box). I put Drobo in standby using the Dashboard, cycle power and…nothing. The file does not unpack, no subfolder is set up…nothing. I followed the directions as best I could and and described above all to no avail.
By the way, this is round 2. I first tried doing the above with the same results. Then I tried manually unpacking the files. Still nothing. I was afraid to delete the files I unpacked in case they were installed so I reset the Drobo instead. Files unpacked fine but how do I access the admin utility? How do I know they are installed after unpacking? I tried a reboot but nothing seemed to happen.
After round 2, I rest the Drobo, reformatted and tried again but without manually unpacking. From what i have read, Drobo is supposed to unpack and setup a folder. This is not happening.
Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
