I searched the forums before asking, but concerning WOL there is funny enough only one thread, which is the feature-request thread (http://www.drobospace.com/forums/showthread.php?tid=1496). Sadly no one (from the drobo team or otherwise) even updated the thread with the “good news” that there is the WOL plugin now for the FS.
Yet now I wonder: Is this really working like what I had with my old Thecus NAS: Getting started-up and shut-down with a press of a button from my laptop? Now there are two big roadblocks:
1). Actually I even do have a program (WOL Magic Packet Sender*) to put all the data in, but the problem is drobo doesn’t provide this data (/I don’t know if it is as simple with a drobo too), so I can’t quickly put this to work.
2). I don’t even know if putting the plugin into the droboApps folder is enough?
There is ZERO documentation about this in general and about the WOL plugin in general!!! Why? This is a fail. Sorry, but just the truth.
Because e.g. I read sth. on the drobo website that you need yet another program to get this working on a Drobo Pro (specifically: dropbear) and now I wonder (after having found named page via Google) what I actually have to do? Has actually ANYONE here implemented WOL for his drobo?
It sucks to always have to press the button, I really wonder how you guys power up your drobo after having it powered down?? O.o
So far, thanks for your help in advance!
PS: Am I noticing this right, I can’t even use “bold” (this is why I have to use CAPS -.-) or embed hyperlinks here? Ridiculous! Please update your forum software! That’s a bit too restrictive!
