Dashboard not longer sees the Droboshare, it does see the local USB connected drive (I have two Drobos). My systems sees the Droboshare (as my NAS), and I can access the data on the Droboshare’s Drobo drive, but I cannot place the drive in standby mode or otherwise control it.
Having lost data in the past, I’m very concerned in that I do not want to reboot the drive by hot disconnecting it.
I’m getting most annoyed by the lack of on board switch/button to place the Drobo in in standby mode. I’m also furthered annoyed by the fact I need to keep my front covers off the boxes in order to see the activity light or Drobo’s state sleep/awake/remapping function. I think we need some sort of scrolling human message panel, rather than these dumb blue lights.
Today is a holiday, and I’m concerned. Very concerned! AND I have work to finish.
FWIW, the other Dashboards on my network, similarly no longer see the Droboshare, but all see the Drobo and can read/write data.
OS: Vista 64 and 32
Firmware 1.3.5 on both drives
Dashboard 1.5.1 on all systems
All on UPS, and had no power failures, just reboots of PC or awakenign from sleep mode. Cold reboot does not re-activate the Dashboard.
Any words of wisdom?
