my drobos works fine if i connect it via usb to my pc. now i have a new droboshare. ok it comes with no additional power supply - fine.
BUT ma drobo is doing nothing after i shut it down (safely!) and set the connection to droboshare.
“cut” power supply
connect lan to droboshare
connect usb drobo & droboshare
connect power “Y”-cable to drobo and droboshare
connect power to both
result on droboshare:
lower led is green and stable
upper led is “sometimes blinking at an high rate” nothing special
result on drobo:
result on my PC:
drobos dashboard is saying “ready for connection” (in german:-)
Hi again, Now I know why this happend to me. the fault is on this damn “Y”-cable. This I have to change. The support team send me another power supply. Both are working fine. I have to call them again to get this to “green”. If you know what I mean.
