Drobo

mounting on Linux System

I am trying to mount a Drobo (4 bay) onto a Linux (Red Hat) system. In order to mount it I need to know the filesystem type or I need to reformat the drive. Can anyone give me any guidance in this?

Did you format the drive?

There’s a package called drobo-utils (see http://drobo-utils.sourceforge.net/ ) that says it can do all of this stuff, although I have no personal experience with it. According to this page: http://joysofprogramming.com/install-drobo-utils-fedora-rhel/ you can install it through Yum.
