• When connecting to network shares from a Mac OS based host, Drobo Dashboard will default to use
the SMB protocol over the traditional AFP protocol.
Drobo B800i and Drobo B1200i
• The ATTO iSCSI initiator is no longer a package bundled within Drobo Dashboard for Mac OS
installs. Drobo Dashboard upgrades from a previous Dashboard release onto to 2.6.4 will continue to
work, when iSCSI is used. New Dashboard installs will prompt users to visit ATTOs website to obtain
such package if needed. More information can be found under Knowledge Base Article # 353.

KNOWN ISSUES
General Issues
•
When connecting a direct attached Drobo to a Mac OS X 10.10 based host and the connection
medium is USB-1.1, USB-2.0, USB-3.0 or FW-800, the standard OS external drive icon may be
displayed instead of the Drobo icon. Drobo is looking into this issue and will issue a Drobo
Dashboard update when a fix becomes available.
