Locked out of a 5N

Locked out of a 5N
I have a 5N that's 3 years old. So no support. Firmware 3.1.0. Dashboard version 2.8.3.

About a month ago the drives filled up so I added another drive. However, I can't access the device at all. The admin password doesn't work. A user account that I was using in a batch file to mount and copy files logs in to the dashboard but cannot access any shares.

Doing a password reset makes it all the way through to where I enter a new password for admin. Then it says "Failed to save the settings", and no password reset occurs.

Any ideas?

RE: Locked out of a 5N
hi darron,
there might be some info here that could help, from this thread, (and linked threads) from here:

if that does not work for you though, it may be worth trying to update dashboard and trying again, such as from here, which may work 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)
