Earlier today I was prompted to install the Firmware 1.2.0 update for the Drobo FS that I use as a network backup system. While the firmware installation completed without error, it had the unfortunate side effect of removing the device’s admin name and password that prevents me from performing normal administrative functions like setting share points and unmounting the device. To turn off the Drobo, I have to press the power button, as the shutdown button in Drobo Dashboard no longer works. If you have a Drobo FS, I strongly recommend that you don’t install the 1.2.0 Firmware update.
Drobo Dashboard could not unmount this share. Please make sure you that you are not using any files on this share and try again.
Dashboard was unable to change the Drobo preferences. Please exit/restart Drobo Dashboard and try again.
