Here’s what happened.
Needed more space. Saw a deal on 3TB drives. Installed one. Everything looked good. After a few days things went funky and then I realized my Gen 1 Drobo was still on 1.3.0 firmware which does not support 3tb drives. Drives was showing as a 2.19tb drive but everything was reading and writing correctly but getting a funny light show from the drobo.
Ordered a new drobo and drives so I could do a full backup before moving forward. Of course I should have done this a long time ago but here we are. Before I have a chance to backup the drobo it goes goofy and start to reboot on me. As soon as it mounts to my system it reboots. Keep in mind it worked fine for a week or so except for the light show.
Pulled the disk pack and was able to update the firmware to 1.3.8 but I haven’t installed the disk pack yet.
I do have access to another Gen 1 Drobo that is running 1.3.7 BTW.
What should my next steps be?
