I’m a very new 5N user with moderate+ OSX abilities (I’m no IT guy). This is my first NAS. First my setup: 5N (2x2TB, 2x1TB about 60% full) is plugged into an apple time capsule port. The time capsule is fed from the Comcast router (broadband) and my Mac Pro is ethernet to the time capsule.
Here’s my issue. I’ve been trying to transfer DVD files (and other large files) from one share to another. Mark>DVD Backups (share) to Public>DVDs (share). The transfer starts fine for a minute or two then stops (seems to hang). A couple things happen. #1 I get one of a couple error messages (attached). #2 the network signal seems to disappear. I can’t get on the internet with the Mac Pro, Dropbox syncing has stopped, but I can still access a good wi-fi signal with my laptop. The original transfer of files to the Drobo worked fine and was connected the same way as described above. The other thing I noticed was the folder (DVDs) I created in the Public share is “greyed out” or faded and if I click on it, it doesn’t show me the contents. The public share is mounted. So as a test, I created Public1 share and tried the transfer. Same results.
The only changes I made to anything when I set up the Drobo was in relation to trying to get Crashplan installed and working (which was a nightmare). According to instructions I found, I did change IP addresses on the Drobo and the time machine and did something with DHCP (this is pretty much over my head but I can follow instructions). I’m confident I followed the instructions correctly because everything else seems to be working except this transfer issue.
Thank you for any help, as a new owner this is frustrating.
I don’t know how to include an image.
