I have a Mac Mini Server - 2.6 GHz Intel Core i7 with 16 GB ram running OS X 10.8.2. It replaced my old PPC 1.8 MHz iMAC that died last year. So far the speed and performance are awesome! I am still working my way through getting this set up as a server on my home network. I have 2 - 16TB Drobos connected. I am having an issue just recently adding files to my Drobo. I get the error above. I also seem to have an issue with adding music to my iPod. I get error "Attempting to copy to the disk "My Name's iPOD" failed. THe disk could not be read from or written to. I have reset the iPOD and erased all files on in and now can't add any to it. I thought that since I am the Admin that I would not have any issues. I made sure my permissions were OK on the DROBO since it used to be connected to my old PPC iMAC.  I started out being able to do all this and now I can't. I am sure there is something I have over looked. I have not even tried to get my MBP to connect to the server until I can iron out what the deal is locally. Also are there any good ebook manuals that would describe the Server setup in greater detail? I just want to be able to connect to it remotely from outside my home network to access files and maybe even send photos to for backup when away from home. I have a DynDNS account but have not gotten anything figured out from there. ANy help or direction would be great.

Also have the fixed the Podcast issue? It worked perfectly fine when it was in iTunes. The App  my Touch kept crashing and I have been unable to even listen to any of my Podcast. I wish they would put it back in to iTunes.

Thanks again.
