hey folks - setting aside my rage that I drove 2.5 hours to my server’s location only to be told “ohhh too bad, should should have bought dorobocare”… I’m trying to troubleshoot this issue.
Sorry, rant over.
My drobo s is connected via USB 3 to a Mac Mini running 10.10 server.
Seemingly randomly it becomes unmounted.
Rebooting does fix it. The only solution is to drive 2.5 hours, turn the drobo off and turn it back on.
I’ve tried replacing the USB 3 cable. I’ve added some ventilation and have even moved the Drobo outside the server cabinet (ambient air temp is about 65). Sometimes it stays connected for 3-5 days, sometimes 3-5 hours.
All drives are solid green.
I’ve been checking the OS X System logs for anything having to do with the rdisk in question - nothing appears.
So my questions are:
is there any way remotely reboot the drobo? Driving 2.5 hours each way has become problematic.
Any idea what the root cause may be?
From the Mac Mini, the drobo is shared to a linux box via NFS. Is there any chance that high read/write volumes cause it to become dismounted?
I’m having the same issue here with a USB3-connected Drobo 3G w/ MacMini Sever. All lights green, no signal that it isn’t working normally, open-area with plenty of cooling, yet getting random disconnects (unsafe dismounts). Rebooting solves it most of the time, but not always.
