Description of Issue
After migrating my Roon Core from Debian 10 running on a Hyper-V server to Alma Linux 8 running on ESXi Hypervisor 6.7 U3, Roon seems to experience some weird issues when the open-vm-tools package (Open source version of the VMware Tools package used for interaction between the guest OS and the hypervisor) is installed on the core.
Without the package installed, I’m able to play anything without issue. When installed, I get the “Playback was interrupted because a track failed to load” error message, no matter I try to play something from Tidal or from my local library.
Devices are all on the same subnet.
Core and bridge have a static IP
Firewall & SELinux are disabled on the core.
Any idea how to fix this?
