I have the same issue described in this thread
(apols for moving here, but that thread was for legacy machines…)
The lights on the DroboN5 all look as they should be, but i cannot access it, either via network, or directly connected to my Mac.
The Dashboard ‘sees’ my Drobo and reliably reports in that all is ok and gives me the lovely green image of all my healthy disc. However, when i go to or (for example) it is slow to respond and eventually comes back with the message
“Almost There…Your Drobo is in the final stage of starting up. This will only take a few more seconds.”
But it stays like that indefinitely.
My Question is: is there a way of starting the Drobo with Apps off? I have a hunch that the problem is in there somewhere, having installed Plex there a few days before this all started.
I also have a SSD in the Hot Data Cache, and wonder would it be worth restarting with this removed (would Apps be running from here, for example)
thanks all in advance[hr]
i can also make the 5N lights flash via the Dashboard control…[hr]
also, the dashboard, despite the message is now offering me to update to Firmware: 3.2.3.
Would anybody think this was a good idea?
