Checking for Software Updates Automatically

The following steps keep your Drobo Dashboard and your Drobo device’s firmware up to date automatically.

1.   If it’s not already running, launch Drobo Dashboard from the host computer and select the appropriate Drobo device on the All Drobos page.

2.   Click Dashboard Preferences on the Navigation menu.

The Dashboard Preferences page opens.


3.   Ensure that the Enable automatic check for updates check box is selected, and then click the OK button.

You can also deselect the Enable automatic check for updates check box, though we recommend that you keep it selected.

4.   When one or more software updates are available, a message opens, asking if you would like to install the update(s). If so, click the Yes button and follow the prompts to install them.
