Drobo NAS Fault Tolerance

Hello,

I currently have 2 Drobo 5N NAS's.  They are both replicating each other so there is always an active and backup storage device.  What I would like to happen is if one should fail, the other will automatically become the active NAS and have it's ip address changed so that I don't have to manually do this, or manually remap everyone's office laptop.  Any and all help would be appreciated.

Regards,

Here is a document on how to create a fallback using Drobo products. I;m not sure if it applied to your version.
