I’m currently running Lion (10.7.5) with a first generation Drobo. It’s working fine with this setup:
Dashboard: 1.8.4 (1.8.38139)
Firmware: 1.3.7 (1.254.30359)
From what I can tell from the Lion FAQ, I should be running firmware 1.3.8, but it’s unclear to me on what Dashboard version I should be using (lists 2.2.x, 2.1.x, 1.8.x) (actually on a page referenced from Lion FAQ, Downloading Older Versions of Drobo Software)
When I boot up, Drobo is telling me new firmware (1.4.2) and new dashboard (2.0.3a) is available.
Now that my iPhone 5 is on its way, I want to upgrade my iMac to Mountain Lion. I know the 1st gen Drobo has been declared end of support, which I assume is why there is no info on the Drobo Support for Mountain Lion page.
Has anyone had any success running Time Machine on 1st gen Drobo on Mountain Lion? If so, what version of firmware and dashboard are you using?
