I posted this last week but in the wrong area. Posting in the right area now and hoping to get some help or insight. (The drive is still on and I have not touched it now in 4 days).
I removed all the drives from my Drobo FS and did a hard reset (pinhole) because I wanted to wipe the network settings. This was done successfully.
I launched the dashboard and turned the Drobo on and it was discovered fine.
I was prompted to install new firmware, which I did successfully.
I then inserted the 5 drives that was in it before hard resetting and one by one they came up fine with a green light next to them, but all the blue lights at the bottom of the Drobo had not illuminated so I waited.
Eventually, after about 20 minutes, all 5 drive lights started blinking green and yellow. According to the inside cover, the flashing green and yellow means “Don’t remove this drive”. So I figure a process is being carried out and I should just wait for it to finish. This started at about 10pm and it never stopped blinking so I left it over night. The next morning (this morning) it was still blinking green and white. So I left it. It’s now 3pm and still blinking green and white. I am leaving it for now.
Is this normal? Should I leave it? Or is it stuck in some weird loop that I should manually intervene into? I will leave it blinking until I get a response.
Thanks in advance for any help.
–I am using a 2008 Macbook Pro running OS X 10.10.1 (Yosemite). The Dashboard version is 2.5.4 and the firmware in the Drobo has the most current update.
