Drobo

Drobo won't shut down after firmware update.

Hi all.

Ever since I updated my FS firmware to 1.2.0 [4.28.40667] it will not shut down using the Dashboard.

I get the following message every time.

Drobo Dashboard : A volume seems to be busy and is preventing Drobo Dashboard from continuing the Shutdown command. Please close all windows and applications and try again.

Nothing is accessing the Drobo and nothing else on my PC has changed. I am using Windows 7 Ultimate 32 Bit, and the Dashboard is version 1.7.3.

The only way I can shutdown the Drobo now is to flick the switch at the rear of the device - not ideal.

Does anyone have a solution for this?

Thanks :slight_smile:

After upgrading to fw 1.2.0, not all of the functions of the old dashboard work; that was my experience.

Go to the drobo website and download the latest dashboard 2.0.3. Manually update to the latest dashboard and give it a try. The new dashboard is a black background.

Thanks I will try that out and see if it works.

I downloaded the latest version of Dashboard, and now it shuts down perfectly as before.

Thanks very much for your help :slight_smile:
