Forgot IP
I stored an old 5N with my drives and an old backup of my data in the closet for a few years and now I can not connect to it. I remember I had it set to a static IP but I don't remember what ip it was. Anyway to reset the networking or a way to connect to this thing?

RE: Forgot IP
hi tmr, if you can have a look in dashboard, can you see a setting to allow it to connect or find the drobo automatically (via dhcp)?
if you are still able to login as admin, you may be able to change it for example as mentioned here:
http://manuals.drobo.com/#t=Configuring_...http://manuals.drobo.com/#t=Configuring_Network_Settings_(and_IP_Addresses)_for_Your_Drobo_5N.htm&rhsearch=dhcp&rhh

(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)
