My DroboPro lost power unexpectedly due to some renovations we are doing in our office. The server it was connect to via iSCSI was powered down when the Drobo lost power, so there shouldn’t have been any read/writes going on. Upon powering it back up, it is stuck in a constant reboot loop (All lights come on for about 30 seconds, then go out and the process starts over again).
I had this problem a while back when trying to do a firmware update. Support walked me through the standard process to fix this and it worked then. This time that procedure does not work.
Right now, I have no drives in it and no data cable hooked to it. And it does the constant reboot loop instead of powering up and giving me a red light on the first bay to indicate there are no drives installed.
I called support last night and they “escalated” my case. I figured while waiting on them I may as well post my problem here to see if anyone has any insight.
