Drobo

First Gen drobo LUN size

I have a first generation drobo and was wondering what the max LUN size I can use is? Someone told me I can set it to 8TB another person told me it’s not possible, I have to keep it at 2TB. I just bought some new 2TB drives and I am not sure how my machine will react when I put them in with the default LUN size.

Can anyone shed some light on this for me?

xp has a limit of 2tb

vista/win 7 has a limit of 16tb

Hey Thanks for your quick reply… I am using Linux ext3.

Is the max LUN size set by the OS or is there restrictions on the drobo itself?

on a regular drobo the limit is 2tb and that drobo’s limit not the OS

Thanks, that is exactly what I needed to know.

you are a gentleman and a scholar.
