Hello! I had been using Audiolinux but the machine it’s on has trouble mounting the drive where my music is stored so I’m moving the roon core. I have good backups and when I restore the backup to the new core (following the Migration article), it restarts the Roon interface, I log in with my email and it just sits there at the Roon loading icon for hours. I’ve deleted Roon core and set it up again, restored the database, logged in and get the same results. Any suggestions on what I might do differently?
Thank you for the report, and I’m sorry to hear you’re experiencing login troubles. Just to clarify, since you mentioned a database restore; did you fully refresh the database by taking the following steps? This will clear out any cached settings/system files, etc. Since you’ve already migrated, I’d take this step on both the new Core and the old Core (once you have a backup saved in a separate location), for due diligence, before installing Roon on the new Core and restoring your backup.
Weird. It sounds like your Backup is no good. That shouldn’t be happening any more.
I guess that you’ve tried all other Backups and got the same result?
Tagging @support. Hope they have a better answer. Backup corruption was supposed to have been fixed, but maybe not.
Oh yeah, two other things. Can you bring up your old Core and take a fresh Backup or have you tried bringing up ROCK with old Core turned off? Shouldn’t make any differences, but straws grasped as it were.
I’ve tried the 2 latest, I’m about to try a couple more. Any restore in the last month is better than starting over.
The old core is turned off but will still come up. Problem is, since it can’t mount the drive that was connected locally with music, I’m assuming another backup would be unusable, because it shows a lot of songs missing.
Thanks for the input and wishing me luck. I need it.
I’m afraid you’re right. Thanks again for trying to help.
For those of us who are normally comfortable with utilizing backups, this is a bit of a wake up call. Once I go through the exhausting process of rebuilding all of my playlists, I’ll start exporting them in addition to the backups, since this process is such a PITA and this has taken away my faith in relying on backups.
I’d lose my job in IT if this was how our backups worked.
