Im fairly new to NAS’ (which is why i bought the drobo fs).
I booted it using my Mac Mini and i have to say it was pure plug and play (and it is already in use streaming my movies wireless to the Mac Mini - just great).
I have a few PC’s as well (windows 7), which i would like to have mount the drobo shares, but im getting the “Drobo Dashboard could not mount the selected share because a system ressource is in use” error.
I have tried mounting it manually, but no luck (i can see it, but not access)
Do i need some third party software to use the drobo crossplatform ?
from windows, you should be able to login using the names and passwords you setup from the mac.
you really only need dashboard installed on one computer to set the drobo up, after that you can do everything from the OS.
assuming you didn’t rename the drobo, just go to “//DROBO-FS” (no quotes) in exlorer, and the shares should show up. if you have a user on the drobo that has the same name and password as what you are logged into windows with, that will be what you log into the drobo with.
