Roon Core Install


I recently bought a new Mac. I took my OLD Mac and put it on my network as my Roon Core. The OLD Mac was already running Roon and was backed up via TimeMachine.

I used my TimeMachine backup on my NEW Mac to transfer all of my settings including Roon. I uninstalled and reinstalled Roon only to have my NEW Mac scan and scan for the Roon Core. I have followed the directions of other threads and have deleted the Library Roon contents, Disabled Bitdefender, etc etc. I have even tried to directly go to the OLD Mac IP address to find the Roon core to no avail. Any advice?

Hi @Scott_Schotanus,

So we can better assist you, please describe your network configuration/topology, including any networking hardware currently in use, so we can have a clear understanding of how your devices are communicating.

Are other remote devices able to connect to your Core?

I would remove roon completely from the new Mac as time machine restores do not play well with a server/database type application like Roon. Once its completely removed including all the library based roon folders then install roon again and restore from a USB stick backup from your old core setup.
