Drobo

Drobo FS new user

Looking for some beginners help. I was recently given a Drobo FS with nothing on them. They had been completely wiped already. I’m having trouble finding how to setup the drobo on my network. When I plug it into my PC, I can see the IP address. When I plug it into my router, I can see the drobo is connected, but IP is hidden, and my dashboard can’t see it. I also can’t get the public or apps to mount through the dashboard. My game plan is to have this hidden, and use it as a remote NAS that I can share with my family. Any and all help is appreciated.

Note that there are security problems with SMBv1 which is why Windows has it disabled by default.
