Failure in drobo chassis hardware: how to solve
Hi all,

this is just a question for experts which already have experience about the answer.

What happens if, for any reason, all hd in drobo box (ex: 5C) are ok and the errorĀ“is instead in the chassis and the only solution is to replace the chassis itwself?

If I buy e new 5C and insert all the hd in the same position as the old broken one, does Drobo 5C automatically read and identify the previous configuration written on hd and all the data will be immediately available without the need of doing anything?

RE: Failure in drobo chassis hardware: how to solve
hi moro,
if your diskpack is ok, and if your 5c (hardware chassis) has the problem, then i think you should be able to use the migration process for accessing your diskpack via another compatible model, for example as mentioned here:
http://www.drobo.com/resource-center/migration/

(i had to migrate the diskpack from my drobo-s-gen2 into another compatible model, and was able to access all my data again)

a key part of the process is to only remove (or insert) diskpacks in their entirety, and only when power is all off and unplugged, though more details are available via the link above for you.

(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)
