So last week I got a sonictransporter to replace a Microsoft Surface Pro that I’ve been using to run the core successfully for a year or so. The only reason for the change was that I wanted to free up the Surface for other needs. The transition has been a bit sketchy. The first one was defective and had to be returned. The next one worked right away and I restored a core backup and was functional. That lasted for about three days or so and then Roon couldn’t find the core. The ST is still visible on the network and I could successfully ping it and access it through Mysonicorbiter (although response was very slow and it often times out). I tried changing cables, rebooting, hooking it up to the router instead of the switch. No joy.
Because the ST was visible on the network I decided the Roon installation on the ST might be the issue so I deleted it and reinstalled it. That seemed to be successful but I still can’t access the core through Roon. So I’m basically stuck now and back to using my Surface as the core. It’s working fine but I bought the ST to be used. I’ve already contacted @agillis but given that it’s the weekend I will have to wait a bit. So I thought I would try contacting the community. I’ve been reading through a lot of other posts and it seems that a number of other people have had similar issues but I haven’t come across any definitive solutions. Can anybody recommend any next steps to try? Any help would be appreciated.
My setup is as follows:
ASUS Router (RT-N66U) -> D-Link DGS-1210-20 (Managed Switch)
Everything else is connected to the switch by Ethernet other than an iPad that I use as a Roon remote
Music stored on Synology DS1511 NAS (fairly large library - approx. 130,000 tracks)
I have three endpoints (1 Auralic Aries and 2 Microrendus)
