I had a perfectly working Roon installation using a Sonictransporter with SSD to run Core and a Synology DS412+ NAS for media storage. The SSD died and as a result I had to do a new install and restore the Roon database. I went to add back the network storage location but Roon no longer recognizes my NAS by its hostname “Music_NAS”. I get a message that it is unable to connect to the host. However, if I use the IP address, it connects just fine. I prefer to not use the IP address as it is dynamically assigned on my home network.
During the time that the Sonictransporter was having its SSD being replaced, I did an update of the Synology DSM to 6.2.1. Is it possible that there is a setting that needs to be changed in DSM?
The NAS is visible on my network and on my iMac through Finder; no issues at all. The files load into Roon when I use the IP address. Yes, I’m being very careful to type the hostname in perfectly- no extra spaces; proper upper/lower case; etc. The fact that the IP address works shows that the login and password are correct. The issue is that the hostname is not recognized. I even went into the NAS and changed the hostname and tried that- no luck.
