I have been dumping a load of stuff onto my DroboPro today.
Initially, I had 760 Gb used on the DroboPro. Having done some wiring, I rebooted the MacMini and DroboPro. When they came up, the Drobo mounted (iSCSI) and the pie chart shows 760.32Gb Used space, out of 1.93Tb (I have 4 x 1.5Tb disks in there with dual redundancy).
I am watching the volume list below the pie chart, currently this is showing 955 Gb used space - the pie chart has not moved from 760Gb. Three blue lights are lit on the DroboPro.
I have tried quitting and restarting DroboDashboard, no change. I cannot reboot the machine yet - the copies are still running. If I leave the Dashboard quit for, say 10 minutes, the Drobo blue lights don’t sort themselves out either.
If I go into tools, it shows the 760.32 Gb, not the 961Gb (copied 6 Gb as I have been typing).
So, how real time is the dashboard software? Some bits are obviously correct, but the majority is not…
The DroboPro is set for 1 16Tb partition and one volume, all formatted through the Dashboard. Dashboard 1.6.7 and firmware 1.1.4.
