5D won't complete boot process
Was having an issue where Drobo was not mounting and dashboard was;t seeing it (connected via Thunderbolt). Decided a reboot was in order.

Power on - goes through flashing blue lights process then stops.

Lights that are on: 2nd blue light and 3 blue lights on the right as well as the power light which is green.

No other lights on or flashing.

RE: 5D won't complete boot process
hi, would you be able to try powering down the computer
and then unplugging the connection cable from the drobo

and then trying to reboot the drobo (without any connection cables)
does it complete the blue led booting process, with lights from 1 through to 10, before doing into standby mode?
(if it seems to hang on a particular light, please try to give it at least an hour to see if it gets any further)

(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)
