I had a power glitch here today and even though I’ve got my Drobo Pro and the server it is connected to on a UPS (which is getting replaced tomorrow because it is obviously a piece of rubbish) the Drobo Pro lost power although the linux box it is connected was fine. Once I got it all back up and running again the Drobo Pro no longer seems to communicate over firewire. I’ve tried plugging it into another machine with the same result
It will still work via USB and iSCSI, and I was running it under iSCSI for much of today but found it was causing problems, so I’ve dropped back to USB
On top of that it is currently running 1.1.5 firmware, and when I try to update to the latest (1.2.1) it says it is doing it, but when I tell it to reboot the Drobo Pro it seems to go to sleep. The drives spin down and the power light goes yellow. When I boot it up again, the dasboard says the Drobo Pro is still running the old firmware
Is there anything I can do to get the firewire working again, and also get the latest version of the firmware.
