Hi, yesterday I migrated from RoonSErver from Windows to my SonicTransporter, after upgrading everything to Roon 1.3. I copied the database as perr the procedure outlined in the forum. Then I re-added the music. It’s been about a day and Roon is still rescanning (the circle on the right upper part is there) but still added dates are not correct. Everything shows up as added yesterday.
Should I wait for the rescan to finish for the correct dates, played statistics, etc., to show up correctly or they should have shown right away?
My library has circa 3,400 albums and 47,000 tracks.
[EDIT] After updating the Roon Remote to the latest version today, just after writing this post, now the Drive connected to my SonicTransporter shows as DriveNotReady and my music is gone from Roon. I can access the same drive from the ST share using my Windows desktop and play tracks on WMP, but Roon for some reason cannot access it.
I am starting to think that this RoonServer Linux business is flawed
I just copied the Roon folders from C:\Users\ [your user name] \AppData\Local\Roon\ to the exposed RoonServerDB folder of the ST (it is an internal 8GB drive). I stopped the Roon server before and then restarted it after copying.
I removed the music folder from Roon and re-added it and now I got the correct added dates. I did not touch the Roon DB folders on the ST. Go figure.
But, just in case, I removed the folder again from Roon and restored a backup (using the new Roon backup) from the Windows box. Then, I edited the storage path to point to the ST location of the music and everything seems fine
The new Backup/restore function works like a charm!
Now when audio analysis started Roon keeps skipping songs. I get warnings saying that files are loaded slow, etc. I have turned off analysys (both of the whole library and on demand) and still get lots of skips to the point that this thing is useless.
@support, I need some fix. Running Roon on Linux has been a Via Crucis.
The rescan of files supposedly is complete, checkmark is there but the circle keeps spinning on the right upper corner. So, being that I have turned off the analysis off, it seems that the problem happens when the rescan is completed and that spiining circle gets stuck. Stopping Run, etc., does not do anything.
I have reverted, yet again to Roon running on Windows 10. The rescan had completed there and there is no spinning circle. Analysis is going on, slow, but going.
Hey @Gustavo_Gabaldon – sorry for the frustration here. Can you let me know how large your library is (in Tracks) and which Sonic Transporter you’re running?
If you’d like to go onto the Sonic Transporter and zip up the logs folder, I’d be happy to have a look at it. Just upload it to Dropbox and send me a link, or let me know if you need a place to upload it and I’ll send you some instructions.
@mike, I have 47,000 tracks. The ST is a I% model with 8TB internal HDD. As I said on a previous post, the rescan seems to be completed, the checkbox is there and it says completed but the circle stays there spinning.
No problem @Eric , let me know if you need anything else. One thing I forgot to mention is that after the rescan on the ST, a couple of albums added long time ago re-surfaced at the top of the most recent. Not sure why. On the Windows 10 rescan this did not happen. Hope this helps as well.
