My Drobo is killing me! At random moments shares disappear from my small office network. When that happen also Drobo Dashboard can not connect to the B800fs. However, ping keeps working and I can see the device when browsing network. But when click to open in order to access shares I get the annoying “Network Error: Windows cannot access \DROBO” popup. Similar for OSX computers.
Drobo B800fs firmware: 2.15 (OOB)
Drobo Dashboard: 2.53 Windows
Drives: 4x WD 6TB Red NAS
TimeMachine: Not in use.
DroboApps: only Dropbear for pointless (since I can not remote restart) telnet access
I thought was drives’ problem. I found articles saying WD Red NAS drives have unusual way to sleep. I try to stop them from sleep by schedule copying a file of 100GB every 1 minute (and delete them all every day). This maybe help, but not really. Sometimes a week pass without any problem. Other times shares crash 2-3 times per day! Makes me crazy! I can only reboot from the button.
Is there any Beta firmware or something can save me?
