Running Roon Core in a Virtual Machine

Hey Roon community,

I’ve been running my Roon Core in a Vagrant virtual machine for the last 1.5 years without issues, so I decided to post here my setup in case you want to replicate it. Vagrant is easy to install in any platform and I’ve created this recipe to run it using the underlying virtualbox platform.

So, here’s the recipe along with pre-requisites and instructions:

All instructions are command line, the nice thing about that is that you can set and forget this environment running in a headless machine. Once the VM is up, you can follow the regular Roon core setup from the app and add your network shares and restore backups if you’re moving from another installation.

Let me know in the comments if you end up using it!
