Just got my Drobo Pro and hooked everything up ok using ISCSI
I’m using my Drobo for two different tasks. 1. For video editing I have around 6 TB of video footage and everything seems to be working okay with that.
I also want to use my Drobo to serve all my DVD files to my media server and Western Digital set-top box both of which use a normal 10 – 100 network socket.
So the way I want have it set up is the ISCSI is plugged directly into my edit computer in my office, this computer is switched on 24 hours a day, one of the volumes on the drobo is for DVDs so I tried to make this a shared folder on the network so that my media centre PC and my Western Digital set-top box could both access this volume over the network from my edit computer. This seems to work fine however when I reboot my computer the volume is no longer shared??
I am running Windows 7 on all machines, is there some reason why a drobo volume on my computer cannot be shared over the network after a computer has been rebooted?
to set up the volume I was just going to Windows Explorer I right click on the drobo volume which is currently my Z drive and select, share with,advanced sharing.
