I am on a Mac 10.10.4
I have a DroboFS which I have been using as a backup to another Drobo.
Yesterday the DroboFS failed to mount on the desktop, Drobo Dashboard can’t find it and I can’t rsync files to it (which is how it it normally used).
I have rebooted the Mac a few times.
I have shut down and restarted the DroboFS a few times.
I updated Drobo Dashboard to the latest (2.6.9).
When browsing the network from the Mac Finder (command+k > “Browse”) the DroboFS appears as connected but when I check permissions on it via Get Info (command+i) the it says I have “custom access”
“unknown” has “Read & Write”
“everyone” has “No Access”
and of course I can’t change the permissions here.
When I try I get a warning that says:
“The operation can’t be completed because you don’t have the necessary permission.”
By double clicking the DroboFS via the Finder Connect to Server, I can sometimes get the DroboFS to mount (appear on the desktop).
Clicking into it I can get to the shared folder and at the top of the Finder window it says “Connected as: username” with the username that is supposed to be allowed to use the DroboFS – I can browse through all the files and folders, and it looks like everything that I expected to be there is there, but of course I can’t modify any of them.
The Drobo Dashboard still doesn’t connect to the DroboFS.
Anyone know how I can get the DroboFS to be accessible again?
I can navigate through the file system and copy files to and from the DroboFS however, rsync via a Terminal still doesn’t work and the Drobo Dashboard still does not recognize the DroboFS is connected.
