I’ve been in talks with support for weeks. (It’s taken weeks because it’s usually 4-5 days between responses) Ever since I’ve upgraded to Lion, my Mac won’t mount my Drobo shares. I’ve followed everything in the KB articles. I’ve deleted my Time Machine share, recreated it… and for the first backup it works OK. But then any other times I boot up my Mac, Drobo Dashboard sees my Drobo but the shares won’t mount. They simply hang in the “Connecting” stage. If I access one of the shortcuts to my share in Finder, the share will then mount within Finder. However, the share in Drobo Dashboard still hangs on “Connecting”.
This is really disappointing because I was about to buy a 2nd Drobo device but these issues (and the manufacturer’s inability to cop fully to them) makes me think there’s no way I can do it.
It should be noted that the Drobo continues to work splendidly on PC. I wish they’d show their Mac users a bit more love. Anyone else experiencing these issues? If there’s a nice alternative to Drobo that’s compatible with Lion, I’d love suggestions.
