Drobo

Moving Drobo from one computer to another

Hello there…

Is there any problem removing the Drobo connected to my laptop and connecting it to a desktop one? I just need to setup Drobo Dashbord on the 2nd one?

For the moment I’m connected to my MacBook Pro and I intend to link the Drobo S to my MacMini and use it as a file server, sharing the Drobo with other computers through it.

Have a nice day…

As long as you properly unmount the drive and disconnect the data connection, it should not be a problem at all.

and no, you do not need dashboard setup, dashboard is used for configuring your device and also for sending out e-mail alerts, to just get read/write access to drobo, you only need to plug it in, not install dashboard.
