On the Drobo
Install the NFS app.
In your Drobo Dashboard, under "Share Settings", make sure the directory you want to share is accessible to "Everyone".
On the Raspberry Pi
Create a mount point:
mkdir Common, where "Common" is the name of the directory you want to share (could be "Downloads", "raspi", whatever you want; I used "Common").
/etc/fstabby adding a line like this:
//192.168.1.252/Public/Common /home/pi/Common cifs defaults,username=chris,password=password_here,noperm,nofail,vers=1.0 0 0
The IP address is the local IP address of your Drobo. Replace "Common" with whatever your shared directory is called.
- Mount the Drobo:
sudo mount -a. You should see a line something like this:
//192.168.1.252/Public/Common on /home/pi/Common type cifs (rw,relatime,vers=1.0,cache=strict,username=xxxxxx,domain=DROBO,uid=0,noforceuid,gid=0,noforcegid,addr=192.168.1.252,file_mode=0755,dir_mode=0755,nounix,serverino,mapposix,noperm,rsize=61440,wsize=65536,actimeo=1)
- Check that it mounted:
Now if you
/home/pi/Common (on the pi) and
touch test.txt you should see
test.txt show up in the Drobo's file system.
