On my systems running Windows Vista and Windows 7, under Networks, often (but not always) the DroboFS will NOT appear (or been seen appearing) as a machine. However, if I directly enter the network address, I would still be able to contact to the DroboFS. After that, it will appear under Networks if I refresh the page, but it will again disappear after a while.
The DroboFS is connected an unmanaged Linksys switch. I have tried connecting it directly to a Linksys router, but it behaves the same. Software firewalls are all off.
Can someone please tell me how to fix this?
Note: I don’t have the Drobo Dashboard running in the background. I use it ONLY to set up the DroboFS. I strongly prefer NOT to have it running all the time.
