Having been a member of the “small number of situations” with “shit” performance on our DroboPro, I’ve been keen to move to the new 1.1.4 firmware. The day it was released I opened up Drobo Dashboard and clicked ‘Check for Updates’ thinking it would do that - but it reported that I was running the newest version of the Dash and Firmware (the Dash is @ 1.6.6 but the fw 1.1.3).
Today I’ve tried it again - still it thinks I’m up to date.
I tried to download the firmware manually but the linked DMG file contains a single .tdz file with no additional information inside. The release notes, although thorough, don’t explain how to manually update or even use the file.
Also why was there no mention of the update on the RSS feed for support? Dash 1.6.6 and just recently the Elites first update have been listed but no Pro 1.1.4.
it could be any number of reasons, perhaps one basically comes down to the fact that it probably makes sense to test it on a smaller group of users who are possibly more technically minded (manually downloading and installing updates), before pushing it out automatically to the whole installed user base.
