I noticed the following in the FS firmware 1.0.4 release notes:
• Symptom: Drobo FS Disk Drive Spin Down not functional (#10-097).
• Condition: Drobo FS did not spin down disk when timeout was configured in Drobo Dashboard.
Does anyone know details about this, I couldn’t find any details in the forums? Does this statement mean it’s a known issue with the new firmware or issue with existing firmware versions?
I have had my new Drobo FS running for a few days and have noticed that the disks don’t seem to spin down when not active. I went as far as shutting down dashboard so that nothing is connecting to the drobo fs with the same result.
