What does the SpinDown behavior look like with regard to the status lights during the spindown period?
The DROBO Elite is connected to an XP Host computer via Gigabit Ethernet and was set to spin down after 6 hours of idle time. Most access is via network shares created on the Host computer. Getting things setup, so there is not much activity. Every day it seems the DROBO is shut down (NO Lights on the front) and I have to Power Cycle it.
We had some Power Failures, (though soon the DROBO will be on UPS) but I noticed it happening even in the absence of any power issues.
I wonder if the DROBO is spinning down and never coming back to life? Or is it a faulty unit shutting down due to heat or other issue?
I just updated to the 1.02 firmware, which seems to have some changes in the way spin down and recovery are handled, but was still curious as to actual behavior during spindown.
Thanks in advance…
