Drobo

Drobo 5N2, time machine, network

#1

So - would it be possible to set up an Drobo 5N2 on my network and use Time Machine to back up two different Macs? I would probably need/want to make a special partition for each of the Mac’s TM drives, just wanted to know if it was possible at all.
Thanks…

Yes, I have more than 6 Macs using my 5N2 as the location for Time Machine backup. Setup a TM volume for each computer, and it is dynamic. You can add more computer TM volumes at any time.

Thanks, Ed. That would be great… my only reservation now is - how well will that work when the computers are on the wi-fi network. I would have the Drobo connected via wire to the router, but the computers would be less attached. Do you have that situation? Anyone else?
thanks,
