I’ve had a Drobo (original) with DroboShare on my Windows network for a long time. None of my PCs (all Windows XP) have any trouble accessing it.
Just bought a Macintosh (MacBook Pro) and installed Drobo Dashboard. It never sees my Drobo.
Is there anything special I need to do to get the Drobo Dashboard to see it?
I am able to telnet from mac Terminal command line to port 139 of my Drobo, so it doesn’t appear to be a networking issue.
Is there somewhere in DashBoard that can tell it the IP to connect to?
Here are entries from the log file:
DDA: 0xa04e6540 06\26 00:36:07 Error - DDADiagsSettings::loadDiagSettings failed to load diag setting from file /Users/Shared/Drobo Dashboard/settings/DiagsSettings.xml.
DD: 0xb0325000 06\27 16:30:47 Error - CapacityPresenter::UpdateVMButtons() - No device selected

DD: 0xa04e6540 06\27 16:30:47 Error - GLGraphic::LoadBitmap() - Failed to load image Empty
I noticed there was no “settings” directory under “Drobo Dashboard” above, so I went ahead and created the directory, but still no XML settings file. Is there a template xml file I can use to create a new file and configure my connection? I don’t appear to have this file on my Windows XP PCs.
Quick follow up…
I’m able to connect to my Drobo using
SMB://DroboShare Name/volume name
but DashBoard still says “Looking for connected devices…” forever.
