Drobo

Increase size of existing volumes

I have a B1200i fully populated with 4TB drives, and the space is allocated into two 16 TB volumes. The volumes are beginning to run low on space, so I’ve replaced several of the 4TB drives with 6TB drives.

Now that have around 8TB of drive space that is showing as unallocated, how do I expand the capacity of the volumes? There doesn’t seem to be a tool on the Drobo dashboard to accomplish this.

Thanks!

You can add volumes from Dashboard. I don’t think there’s a way to resize an existing volume. To be fair, I don’t know if any filesystem will understand an iSCSI Logical Unit Number that magically changes size. Plenty of operating systems can span LUNs if you add another volume to your B1200i.
