DroboPro and El Capitan using USB
Has anyone got DroboPro (Dashboard 2.5.2) working on El Capitan 10.11.5 using USB?

RE: DroboPro and El Capitan using USB
hi whycom,
some other users are also experiencing some issues with elcapitan recently too such as here:
http://www.drobospace.com/forums/showthr...http://www.drobospace.com/forums/showthread.php?
(that was for a different drobo model though)

i saw another thread where a philip mentioned a way to get it working with iscsi... is that a possible option for you at all?
(i think it involved a purchase which is fair enough in case not ideal for you but just to check)
(also just linking a related thread)

(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)

RE: DroboPro and El Capitan using USB
I tested it on my MacPro Laptop with 10.12.5 and Desktop 3.0.1 and USB...all is well!

So I updated my 27" iMac (late 2013) 3.4 GHz Intel i7, 32GB DDR3, Geforce GTX 555M 2MB, again all good!

Now trying to decide on the Firmware 1.2.3 Update...

RE: DroboPro and El Capitan using USB
hi whycom, thanks for the update, its good that you got things working again with usb,

now that things are working again, one option could be keeping things as they are, and only updating if you plan to change something, like upgrading or replacing a drive. (there was a message here about suggesting an upgrade if on a particular version, though as with all firmwares, it is probably best to make a backup of your data before any firmware upgrades, just to play safe if you can, at least for the most important data)
