Hi everyone,

The service starts, but none of the devices mount on startup. I have to manually "Disconnect" and the "Reconnect" and then "Autoconfigure" under devices to get my drives back. Any idea of what might be up?

Thanks!

Try to use Use SnapDrive to disconnect/reconnect drives, as it will automate the process of bringing drives online.

Hmm, it says we're not licensed for SnapDrive provisioning even though the NOW site says Active/Renewed on our downloads page... plus all of our license codes are entered into the filers already.
