Hello. I have my new Nucleus connected up
I have a bunch of questions that could probably be easily answered by an owner’s manual, is there one somewhere? Or is there a guide a tad bit more in-depth than the quick start guide that came with the Nucleus?
As much as I love looking for the answers I need by endlessly searching the community for different iterations of my questions and then reading other people’s questions and responses, it would be nice to skip all that…
Can’t seem to point Roon core to my iTunes music folder. It is attached to a networked Mac via Lightning. I keep getting Unexpected Error message when I use Add Network Share function.
Should I just install HD into Nucleus for now?
Eventually I will have RAID NAS…
The Nucleus Manual is a great place to start for all things Nucleus specific, but when it comes to using Roon in general, checking out the articles in our Knowledge Base is a great way to find information you’re looking for.
This article contains some great information about setting up a networked watched folder in Roon.
Can you share a screenshot of what you’re entering into Roon when you’re receiving this error? Are you being sure to add the correct username and password for the share?
Roon was working fine when the Core was on the iMac connected to the MyBook Thunderbolt external drive, so I know there is a pathway that works.
I’d like to move the Core to my Nucleus which is connected as such:
Maybe that’s asking too much?
This is a temporary solution until my NAS is set up, and I re-rip all my CDs into aiff.
When I say “temporary”, I mean for the next month or two I suppose…
First you’ll want to make sure the folder you’re trying to access is properly shared so it can be accessed over the network. Are you able to access this folder from other machines besides your Nucleus?
I just set up a folder called Example Share to be shared over the network. The path I would enter into Roon is smb://DylanComputer/Example Share. In this example, DylanComputer is the name of the machine the folder is shared on, and Example Share is the name of the folder that is shared.
Give this a try and let me know if you have any questions. Thanks!
The little window that Roon gives to enter the Network Share Location doesn’t scroll or allow you to scroll so it’s impossible to know what you typed.
I turned on File Sharing on the iMac to which the Thunderbolt drive is connected and that gave me the local computer name. From that and using command-i on the actual folder to share, plus your example above, I came up with:
OK getting closer.
I added myself as a registered user, set my password, etc. and can now access the folder from my laptop:
I changed the file type to AFP because it said SMB was for Windows?
So now the route looks like:
Still not working though, with known good user name and password, so my route must be bad
For “up to date” the only things I found were:
Nucleus>Data>Roon Server>Settings>bunch of Unix executable files
Nucleus>Data>RAATServer>Settings>2 .json files and a Unix executable file
I did see something about Roon Nucleus version stable build something and it was an older build than the one on my iMac which I’m replacing.
