Drobo DR from 810n to 800fs
Will Drobo DR replicate on the same local network from a newer 810n unit to an older 800fs unit?

RE: Drobo DR from 810n to 800fs
hi mcharry, from looking at the pages in this section, it seems to be possible:
http://dashboardhelp.drobo.com/guide/250...http://dashboardhelp.drobo.com/guide/250/en/FS_Using_Drobo_Sync_to_Replicat
im not 100% sure though so it would probably be best to wait for some more users to confirm, or if you need a quick answer it might be good to also email the drobo sales team to help confirm 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)

Sorry, that is not supported. You can, however, try to setup a simple rsync replication of data manually. It will require some effort and a bit of Unix shell knowledge.

Tap the full potential of the Drobo FS/5N with DroboApps.

RE: Drobo DR from 810n to 800fs
thanks ricardo,

when i saw some of the pages within that section, and links regarding "Configuring the Destination Drobo NAS device (Pro FS/B800fs/B810n)" and "Configuring the Source Drobo NAS device (Pro FS/B800fs/B810n)", it seemed that it was, so thank you for that important confirmation,
