I am new to Roon and having intermittent connection/playback problems.
I have an elaborate network primarily used for a home technology lab and home automation.
Core: Roon Version 1.4 (build 300) stable (64 bit) on a linux virtual machine with Ubuntu 16.04.4 fully patched and up to date. 64 gb of SSD disk storage and 16 gb of memory allocated. Two cpus (Xeon class on this particular host) allocated to the core.
Control: Roon Version 1.4 (build 300) stable (64 bit) on a Windows 10 Pro PC.
Endpoint: Naim Uniti Atom
Music Library: Three watched folders on a Synology SD 716+ consistent primarily of FLAC files with a mix of Apple lossless and WAV files.
The vmware host with the Core and the NAS are both connected to an HP 1820-24G switch.
The HP switch is connected to a Trendnet 16 port TEG-S16D unmanaged switch via Cat 6 cable.
The Windows 10 pc and Naim Uniti Atom are each connected to the Trendnet swith via Cat 6 cable.
Periodically while playing a file stored on the NAS the controller reports that it can’t connect to the core. The problem tends to self-correct swiftly.
Periodically the music stops playing on the Naim without a connection problem being reported. I need to restart the song.
