I read at drobo.com that firmware 1.3.5 has been released, although there is no date.
I have been having issues with my drobo V2 basicly the whole past year. Normally, once it’s up and running it’s stable, but when booting it, it goes into a constant reboot loop. I’ve found a workaround that used to work until today. It’s to unseat one or two drives (sometimes it won’t work if I only unseat one drive), and reseat them once the blue indicator lights start to “show progress”. At any time when I boot the drobo with all four drives in it, it will go into a constant reboot loop. I have tried the different techniques discussed at the KB on drobo.com, none helps.
But now, it goes into a constant reboot loop from previously running stable! That have only happened one or maybe two times before, but it happened two times today (right now I haven’t bothered to try to get it up and running again). It will mount if i boot it without my disk set in it.
Does anyone recognize my problems? Do you know when the latest firmware was released, and more importantly, how can I roll-back to the previous fw (which didn’t work good, but at least better than this it seems).
I will create a new support ticket for this issue as well, but I’d really like to hear your opinions, since emailing support is often like emailing an email bot. Whatever you type, you get their template answers and questions. Last time I had to deal with the support I literally banged my head on my desk, since the person I was talking to clearly didn’t know half of what I know about computer, but still treated me like an infant.
