Moving. What does unauthorize do?

I have to pack up my Nucleus (with internal music library) for a move. I would like to keep music playing in the house until the family moves so I thought I would set up a core on my laptop and point it at my backup.

I understand that to do this I need to deauthorize my Nucleus so I can authorize the laptop-based core.

When I unpack my Nucleus, want to use it again and authorize it, will I have lost anything? Basically, I want to make sure that my database won’t get thrown out etc.

I couldn’t find anything in the KB to explain deauthorization and most of the forum posts are about deauthorization not working.


If you have a core authorized and start up another core , you will get a warning screen telling you so and allowing you to un-authorize one and authorize the other.

The info is kept at Roon HQ across the internet I suspect so the Nucleus can be in a box switched off .

Many users have a “second home” system running like this on one license.

Unless you backup and restore the roon library across the machines history and library changes will be lost as the library sits on the individual machine.
