I needed to expand the storage capacity of my NAS and discovered that I was unable to do so with the existing device. As a result, I bought a new NAS (to simplify things, both the new and old devices were made by QNAP) and copied all of my music files to the new NAS.
I followed the instructions on the KB article and backed up the Roon database, disabled the old storage location, stopped the Roon server on my NUC and quit Roon, the restarted the server and Roon.
I then tried to edit the storage location to point to the new NAS. I was assuming that it would find the new device and everything would work immediately. However, it has been more than 24 hours and Roon has not completed adding the network share (nor has it generated an error message).
Is it possible that this is normal? I have a large collection of music, but the new location is an exact copy of the old one and the Roon database is completely up to date.
If this behavior is not normal, I have one thought that might explain the problem. In order to make sure everything works flawlessly, I have assigned static IP addresses to my NUC, the NAS and my DAC. After disconnecting the old NAS I assigned the old address to the new NAS, thinking this might make it easier for Roon to find the new NAS. Is it possible that this was a mistake and Roon would prefer to find the new NAS at a different IP address?
Thanks in advance.
