I have a mac mini. I have firewire Drobo attached to the mac mini. I also have a Drobo FS.
If I boot my Drobo FS, I see both drives under the Drobo Dash board. However if I wait half a day and come back to the mac mini, the Drobo FS no longer is showing up on the Drobo Dashboard. If I reboot the Mac Mini, onlyl the Drobo firewire shows up. The only way to get the DroboFS to show up is to reboot it.
Is there something I need to do to rectify this situation? I have two shares on the Drobo FS. One a general share for data. The other a smaller Time Machine backup share. When the DroboFS disappears from Drobo dashboard, Time machine cannot see the DroboFS.
However, if I go to finder, and explore the machine, I see the Drobo FS and I can access the shares that way.
