Drobo

Syncing DroboFS to Time Capsule

I’m using a Drobo FS as my primary NAS device, but I also have a Time Capsule that I’d like to use to mirror certain files on the drobo (since redundancy != backup). Is anyone doing something similar?

Ideally, I’d have a cron job running on the Drobo that mounts the Time Capsule and then runs an rsync command to push files to the TC over the 1gbit, wired network. Does anyone know if:

  1. It’s possible for the drobo to mount an AFP share?
  2. The rsync drobo app handles the various osx file metadata? (It claims to be version 3+, so I’m hoping that means ‘yes’.)

I appreciate any tips!
