Description of Issue
My system was playing music just fine on all 3 streaming devices
I noticed about 5-6 weeks ago, a red warning triangle on the top of my iPad control device indicating that my Roon DB had not been properly backed up. In the roon software, it said my last successful backup was 8/25/22 of this year.
Upon investigating the situation in the Roon software DB backup section, I saw written in red letters that one the backup folders listed was “Not Available”. Searching my system, there is a single location where I locate any Room DB backup files containing 20.82 GB). When attempting to force a backup, I was informed with a message to the effect of the select folder being full or some such like. My backup location is on an external hard drive array (Promise Pegasus2 R4, Raid 5, with a logical 6 TB drive) with 2.11 TB free.
My system has worked practically flawlessly since installation. The only minor problem I have experienced previously was the inability to stream from my active Qobuz account. Looking back now, I see that the resolution of that problem included restarting the Roon software using the web administration interface. I had not done this since my dealer had help me set the unit up almost 2 years ago.
Earlier in the week, in a somewhat desperate attempt to backup my Roon DB, I attempted to back up via the Dropbox option. After this initially failed, I dropped $112 to upgrade my Dropbox storage to 2 TB or so. Once again, 2 subsequent attempts to backup via the now 2TB capacity Dropbox also failed.
This afternoon, recalling I had resolved the previous problem by rebooting the Roon Nucleus, I opened the Web administration interface (Safari 16.0) and first restarted the system. Subsequently, upon attempting to reboot the Nucleus, I was informed that this was not able to be performed and that I should attempt to manually power down the unit. I did this initially by “long” pressing the power button on the back of the unit and waiting for about 7 minutes before turning back on.
Ever since doing this, I have not been able to open the web administration interface. I have since attempted multiple permutations of turning off and/or unplugging the power supply for up to 30 minutes with continued inability to access the web administration interface or in any other way, connect to my Roon core.
My network appears to be working just fine. In fact, I was able to disconnect the ethernet cable directly from the back of my Nucleus and connect to the internet on my MacBook Pro (Yes, I had turned WiFi off) with blazing speed.
I am at a loss for troubleshooting at this point and welcome any further suggestions and advice.
