I have found a few posts addressing this issue, but no solution to my problem is provided. The situation is as follows:
A Droboshare is connected to a GBit Switch and a Drobo Gen2. Three servers (two windows one linux) regularly connect to the Drobo to backup data.
Every night, data ist backuped to the Drobo. On the next day, the Drobo is no longer detected by the dashboard. This happens both to a dashboard running 24 / 7 on a server and a Dashboard started with my PC. In order to reconnect the dashboard to the Droboshare I have to shut down the Drobo by pulling the plug. The backup itself is working, the Drobo can still be found via the networking share.
Pulling the plug from the Drobo every morning is not an option, what can I do to make the Dashboard find the Drobo , which is properly working in all other regards ?
Thanks very much in advance
Drobo Dashboard: V 1.6.7
Drobo-Firmware: V 1.3.5
DroboShare-Firmware: v 1.1.2
Edit: I probably should have posted in the dashboard section, sorry about that.
A few more specs: Dashboard is installed on a Win XP SP 3 32 bit and a Win 7 Ultimate 64 Bit OS. I replaced the RJ45 cable connecting the DroboShare to the switch. The issue still occurs.
