I have searched high and low, haven’t found an answer. Just got a Drobo v2. However when turned on there is no cycling of the lights that occur. Further even with no drives in it the red drive lights stay lit red, no blinking, no turning colors, just red. The power button on the bottom is red as well. All the blue lights are on too.
Drobo dashboard isn’t seeing this either. I am at my wits end. I bought it from someone who says it works fine. No reason not to believe them.
Tried resetting it (holding reset while plugging in), showed no change.
Not seen by drobo dashboard either, just says “ready for connection”.
No count up is seen. All the lights turn on with no changes to the color, even leaving it on overnight results in no change. This is with no HDs in the drobo. Don’t see any change if a known working HD is inserted
I am using drobo dashboard 1.7.3, anyone know where to get the newer 1.8? Can’t find a download for it.
Further when I go into drobo dashboard, I can’t go to advanced tools or advanced data, but I assume thats because it does not find the connected drobo.
Hi kellen just a quick note…
if you have any drives with actual data files on them already, make sure you copy them somewhere before you put them into drobo (as drobo will format them and prepare them for use with drobo).
you probably already know but just fyi.
has this issue been resolved? I have the same one since today - turned on my drobo v2, 3x1TB drives, 2 Volumes, almost empty. The fan came on full speed, all lights on, the disks don’t spin up, nothing happens.
