I have installed a Drobo S to backup my Mac Mini using FW 800. The initial BU took quite awhile and finished with no errors. The following incremental BU's all finished with and error message to try again. I retrieved the messages from console. Any help deciphering this would be much appreciated

There are known issues with Drobo drives and Time Machine. Time Machine tends to fail unless you back up to a disk image on a Drobo. You might find these instructions helpful if you are using Lion. For Snow Leopard, follow these instructions.

Drobo is reportedly working on a firmware fix for the Drobo S for Time Machine.
