Before installing Resilio Connect agent on Drobo, you need to mount DroboApps share, if it's not yet mounted.

Mounting DroboApps:

If you're on a Mac:
- open Finder -> Go -> Connect to server (or user Cmd+K shortcut), enter the server_address/DroboApps, provide credentials for access.

- From Windows Explorer pick to Mount netwrok drive and enter Drobo's address. Provide credentials if asked. 

 

 

 

 

Else, you can use ssh connection to Drobo's Terminal and navigate to DroboApps folder there. 

Installing Resilio Connect Agent:

1) Download the agent config from Management Console, name it sync.conf
2) Download the package. 
3) Put sync.conf and downloaded tar archive into the root of mounted DroboApps share, either through sh connection or through mounted share. 
4) Reboot Drobo.

After reboot, the package will get installed automatically and sync.conf moved to Agent's storage (/mnt/DroboFS/Shares/DroboApps/ResilioAgent/etc/). and tar archive will be removed.
Agent will automatically connect to Management Console and appear in list of apps in Drobo Dashboard. Agent will run as root.

Updating Resilio Connect Agent:

Before updating stop it either from Drobo Dashboard or by sending sigterm signal to rslagent process in ssh session. 
Download the tar and put it to /mnt/DroboFS/Shares/DroboApps directory. Reboot the NAS

 

By default, all shares will be stored in the directory as defined in "folders_storage_path" value in agent config file. This might be %DOWNLOADS%, %HOME% or %USERPROFILE% variable, their default destinations are given here. You can change these defaults by editing folders.conf file in storage folder:

{
  "downloads_folder_path" : "/mnt/DroboFS/Shares/Public/Resilio Agent/Downloads",
  "user_profile_folder_path" : "/mnt/DroboFS/Shares/Public/Resilio Agent",
  "home_folder_path" : "/mnt/DroboFS/Shares/Public/Resilio Agent",
  "management_server": {
    "host": "0.0.0.0:0"
  }
}
