TimeMachine Volume
I was adding a Time Machine volume on my 5d and it got to the reboot stage and never got out of it. After about 10 minutes of rebooting the computer crashed. A Mac with all the latest Drobo firmware and Dashboard versions.

It just keeps rebooting. Computer or Drobo dashboard doesn't recognize it.

Any suggestions?

Thank you,
Scott

RE: TimeMachine Volume
I had one more idea. Reboot the Drobo with the computer off and nothing connected to it. It worked. after a few minutes all was green after a sequence of blue and amber lights and it went into sleep mode. I turned on the computer a few minutes after that and it is all there. Including the new Time Machine volume. WOW!

RE: TimeMachine Volume
hi, am not sure what happened, but maybe another program, possibly spotlight search indexer, tried to index it just before it had fully been setup, though its good that you were able to get things working ok again

(btw i have XP home SP2, a Drobo v1 with 2x 1TB/2x 1.5TB WD greens, & a bkp Drobo v2 with the same + a DroboShare: unused)
& a DroboS v2 with 3xWD15EADS &2x1TB in DDR mode on win7, & a drobo5D (all usb)
  • btw i did a sustained (write) operation for about 6 hours, and got 13.2MB / sec ...objection? "sustained" :)
    (16.7MB/s on a v2 & 47-96MB/s drobo-s)
