I recently run into this database corruption during playback. I just restarted the server software and it seems to work now.
try doing a database backup w/ 880 – it’ll check for corruption before doing the backup (this is new to 880).
If you are corrupt, you will continue to have intermittent issues.
Thanks for the hint. You’re right. I had to restore an older backup. Let’s if the corruption does occur again.
Edit: While processing the new files Roon went again into the corruption message. I’m now restoring an older backup.
It seems that every backup (until June) is corrupt. I can’t use Roon anymore @support Do I have to start from scratch, or are there known bugs which will be fixed in the next update?
Did you update to 882 yet, and try again?
Yes, I already tried it with 882. First unsuccessfully. But then I tried again to restore a backup in the middle and the machine was unresponsive this morning. So I did a hard restart and restored another backup. The machine again was unresponsive after some hours. So I tried again an older backup and currently the machine is analyzing my whole library. I’ll see if this will stop with an unresponsive machine later then.
Today my Server showed me again that the database could not be loaded and I have to restore a backup. I didn’t do this and just restarted my machine. The error is gone and Roon is continuing analysing the rest of my files (ca. 50 %). Cold this be a disk failure and I should reformat the ssd? Is there a way in Rock to run fsck?
If the problem keeps reoccurring, perhaps you should just change out the SSD? I did this on my NUC/Rock core server a few months ago, and performance improved considerably.
My SSD is 3 years old. I don’t think, that there’s a hardware defect. Until the update, I had no problems like this. As Roon forces me sometimes to a hard restart while analyzing many new files it seems more likely to be a corrupted file system. But I don’t really know, it still can be a bug in the Update.
I’m curious as to what makes you think this?
Because I had no issues before the update. And after installing B882 the bug didn’t occur immediately like before. But I’ll look if I have the opportunity to check the drive. Again my question, can ROCK run fsck? If not, how do NUCLEUS owners check the internal disks?
You can boot from a live USB or Live CD to a standard linux and run those commands, I believe. Same as if you needed to run a MEMTEST on a ROCK NUC.
Uh great idea. Thanks, I’ll try t get a Display (I use the NUC headless only)
I clouldn’t check the hardware yet, but I copied all my files to my M1-MacBook and then restored the Database there.
After some time I ran into the same issue. Roon said it had problems, loading the database. So I restarted Roon. Then I got the message, that the database will be updated. After this, Roon started to analyze the new and modified songs. During this, I again got the message, that there’s an issue loading the database. When I restart Roon, it again tells me, that it is updating the database due to the new version. Then it works for some time, but finally the error/bug comes to life again. I can play this game forever, I think. Stange is, that “Reset Database & Settings” does also not work. I have to uninstall Roon first.
- There’s no hardware defect.
- Either there’s a bug in Roon
- or my database and all backups have been corrupt for more than 6 months.
- The audio files seem not to be corrupt, as a fresh setup with the same files doesn’t crash.
Ideas for a solution:
- Reset Roon Database & Settings and create the library from scratch (this seems to work on my M1 Mac) – in my case it’s only half as bad, as I manage my playlists still in iTunes/Music, I only have to re-identify albums and Roon has no history anymore.
- Wait until @support and devs find a solution.
- Sell the NUC, get back to another music solution and have a less stressful life.
when you reset db, and restart, what error do you get? can I get a screenshot?
Sorry, I don’t remember and haven’t taken a shot. Something with “failed”, I think. I just have reinstalled Roon, and it is analyzing again. I want to give it more time, maybe the database error will happen again. Doing the whole procedure again will take one day, but I’ve no time anymore before Christmas. I wish you all some nice days without too much tech stuff .
