I have all red lights,

I went to replace one of the drives with a 8tb seagate and all hell broke loss, it did not like it at all so I pull it out and put the old one back in. Now I have a mess all the lights are red and I don’t know what to do!

Hello there!

Here’s what I would try:

  • Power off your Drobo
  • Remove your disk pack while labelling the order of the disks.
  • Power on the Drobo to make sure it boots correctly
  • Power off the Drobo
  • Insert your disk pack in the same order it was removed (with the original disk), while Drobo is off
  • Power on the Drobo

If that doesn’t work and you have access to Drobo support, you could open a ticket for them to help. Unfortunately, diagnostics files are no longer readable by anyone but Drobo employees.

P.S. You posted this to the “Feature Request” forum. You might want to ask your question in a different forum for added visibility. Also, mentioning the type of Drobo you are using would be helpful.
