I've been running plex on my Drobo5N for a while, recently i was having trouble with the dashboards in plex. after much attempts to fix, i decided to reinstall all my plex files. after uninstall and reinstall i'm running into the an issue that says

"A problem has been detected with a core component of Plex Media Server.
Please visit the forums and provide your logs, as described here ."

i get the above message after the "Please wait a moment while Plex starts" message.

    so... the problem kinda just fixed itself. after all the failed attempts last night. i completely removed plex and shut down the drobo and went to bed. today after work, i reinstalled plex and everything seems to be working fine now

    thanks for your reply @sa2000
