If we move to use the full Roon in the meantime, is there an easy way to transfer the database from the RoonServer to Roon in the library?
I just need my RoonServer to start so I can export its database and migrate it to my new Mac mini (which is running the full Roon, actually).
So, a workaround for the problem where Roon Server fails to fully initialize and function is to run Roon instead of Roon Server. However, there is a problem: the two programs look for their database in different places. Here is how I addressed this problem on my Mac Mini:
- Consider that I am a casual user of Roon, and this is not a recommendation coming from Roon support!
- Log in as the user running Roon Server.
- Quit Roon Server. No program from Roon should be running!
- Open a Finder window and show the home folder.
- Configure Finder to show the
Library folder. (View → Show View Options and check “Show Library Folder”. Note: don’t mess around in the
Library folder casually, it is hidden by default for a reason.
- In the
Library folder Ctrl-Click (or Right Click) on the
RoonServer folder (within the now visible
Library folder) and duplicate it.
- Rename the new “
RoonServer copy” folder to “
Roon”. This is the folder the “Roon” app will use.
- Rename “
RoonServer” to “
RoonServer OLD” (or move it to the Trash).
- Download “Roon” from roonlabs.com, install it, and run it.
- Log in. It found all my local music, was able to play it, etc.
- When you’re comfortable with this solution, move “RoonServer OLD” to the Trash.
Hope this helps!
Tried it, it says there was an error loading the Library and it refers me to this forum
Bumping, I get this exact issue. Clients say the core is initializing. RoonServer says it’s running. Clients will connect once the Roon app runs on the RoonServer. However, the Roon app crashes almost immediatly.

Running RoonServer 1.8 (970)
Can we get an ETA for this fix? This is getting really annoying…
Thanks again for your patience here! We’ve just released a new build (987) that should clear up any issues related to RoonSever getting stuck on initializing. Please update your core to enable the fix.
More details on this release may be found here : Roon 1.8 (Build 987) is Live!

Thanks Benjamin. I can confirm that build 987 RoonServer initializes on my Mac Mini. I’m back in business!
Hi @benjamin. I can also verify that build 987 gets past the “Initializing…” and am able to access the server.
