How do I connect to my Drobo device if SMBv1 is turned off?
Due to the WannaCry virus threat I've turned off SMBv1 on my PC's. Now I can't connect to my Drobo or Drobo Mini. What do I need to do to be able to connect to my Drobo's again?

hi am not sure if a das drobo needs smb? though if you have a mac, does connecting via afp happen to work for you?
for example as mentioned near the bottom of this thread:
http://www.drobospace.com/forums/showthr...http://www.drobospace.com/forums/showthread.php?

or in the knowledgebase article about afp here:
https://myproducts.drobo.com/article/AA-01313

if you have any more info on which drobo model, and computer you have (along with which steps you carried out to disable smb) it could be useful too?

(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)
