I usually only use my drobo once a week to back stuff up.
- My normal routine is plug in the Drobo and let it boot up.
- Connect the FW800 cable to my computer.
- Backup my stuff.
- Put the Drobo in Standby mode.
- Disconnect the FW800 cable.
- Unplug the Drobo.
Today I plug in the Drobo, the fan is on high, all drive lights are red, all blue lights are on, and the power light is red.
I have unplugged the drobo and removed all the drives. Plugged it in again and the same thing happens, fan is on high, all lights red, all blue lights on, and the power light is red.
The reset button on the back does nothing.
PowerPC Mac OS 10.5.8
Drobo Dashboard 1.5.1
Drobo Firmware 1.3.4
3 WD Green 1TB drives
Funny, might be coincidence, but I haven’t started having problems until I upgraded my dashboard and firmware, which was a couple of days ago…
Any ideas on where to go from here?
