I have a strange issue going on where I am running dual NIC cards because the built in NIC is not gigbit on my older machine.
When I fire up the computer in the morning there are times that the Drobo Pro seems to disable my first card that I use for internet access.
Now I am not sure if its the Drobo Pro per say but the card attached to the drobo pro is active, enabled and i can access the Drobo pro. Where the other card is disabled and i cannot get out on the internet.
I confirmed this by enabling the second card and then again have internet access - the strange part is there are times when this card cannot be enabled at all and I literally have to manually shut down the Drobo then it seems to unlock that card from being disabled.
I have gone as far as replacing cables and the one NIC card with no luck so I am assuming that its software or settings based at this point…
The iSCSI interface all looks correct and the unit is set for its own IP.
