So if you have a sonicT with internal storage supplied, and you want it acting as a NAS (where I am copying new music from an iMac to the sonicT’s internal storage over time), then does “Expose Roon Server database” need to be enabled at all times?
I may be getting"Roon Server database" confused with my music files itself (apologies in advance if I am).
Maybe a better way to ask my question: is it possible to copy new music to the sonicT (with internal storage) from an iMac/PC over the LAN network, without enabling the option "“Expose Roon Server database” ?
Note also, my library in Roon is a “watched folder”
I’m going to finally do this…
I recall somebody (@Danny?) mentioning that if we copy the Roon database to another computer, and leave the other computer running, there will be confusion because there will be two Roon servers on the same network.
Is that correct?
If so, can I fix that by leaving my original NUC off, logging into Roon on the SonicTransporter, renaming the Roon server, and then restarting the NUC? Would this give me two non-conflicting Roon servers on the network?
I know, I can just try, but easier if you know the answer.
As I prepare for 1.3, I need to do this backup process, I guess. My one question has to do with the Roon instructions which specify stopping Roon Server while doing the backup. You make no mention of that in the above directions. Is that not necessayry on this device, or do I also need to stop and restart the Roon Core software?
If you follow the links through to the backup instructions you will see this.
Close Roon (or RoonServer – whatever is running your Roon Core)
Navigate to your Roon folder - details about finding your Roon folder are below
Copy your entire Roon folder to your backup location
I followed the instructions listed in the first blog on this chat and now I’m ready to point the Roon server on my sOI5 to my portable hard drives attached to my MS7 PC. The sOI5 and the PC are on the same network. My problem is when I go into Roon -> Add Storage Location -> Folder (Browse) -> Choose Music Storage I do not have an option to point the Roon server to my PC. I’m offered Sonictransport, Add Network Share, or New Folder. I’ve clicked on each and none appeared to allow me to point to my portable hard drives. What am I doing wrong?
Andrew, just bought the i5 from SGC and have been trying to move my roon core to the i5. In roon, I can only see the diaable command for my watched folders; no remove. where in roon, do I go to copy the roon database files? will I need to copy to a zip file and will this include my music files. Do I then paste into the i5 in the RoonServerDB folder. My watched folders on in my 2009 iMac that I’m trying to move away from. I have an internal 1TB storage in the i5. Can I just set my new watched files to be in the SonicTransporter? Any and all help much appreciated
