Drobo 5D "disk failure" brand new hdd
Hi

My drobo 5D showed a solid yellow to upsize the drive and so I purchased a brand new 4 TB seagate hdd. When I replaced the old drive with the new one, drobo is showing a blinking red "hard drive failure"

Drobo is connected to a mac. Is the drive install procedure different for Mac's? Thanks for your help guys.

RE: Drobo 5D "disk failure" brand new hdd
hi romavictor, the process should be the same on any computer as far as i can tell, though can i check if your drobo was running at the time (for example with all lights a solid green, apart from the one that was a solid yellow)?

and when you removed the existing drive, did drobo and dashboard then recognise shortly after that a drive was removed, and then when you put the new 4TB drive inside, did drobo and dashboard recognise it was put in?

(btw if you get a chance could you post back with what firmware you have currently on the drobo, and what the other hard drives you have are, such as make and size?)

(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)
