Description of Issue
I believe, after latest Roon update, the NUC won’t recognise the USB SSD. Checked the SSD on another PC, and the disc shows up as it should. The SSD isn’t corrupted.
If I try to edit the path to the SSD, only adding a network drive comes up as an alternative.
I’ve rebooted ROCK, both soft and hard, and changed the physical USB input for the SSD with no success.
Thanks! That could very well be the problem. I was a bit impatient and thought I could update the BIOS and see if that helped, rendering the OS disc unbootable and Roon recovery via USB stick couldn’t recover it due to a partition table error. I ran live Ubuntu, formatted and repartitioned the disc, installed the latest ROCK build and installed a backup from the 25th of February. A new problem occurred, the backup was too old for the Roon build, I think. Kind of hard to desipher the error message when it disappears out of the screen.
So, a new problem has emerged. Hopefully there’s a workaround.
I could see the error message on my tablet. Roughly translated:
“This version of Roon isn’t compatible with your database. Usually it means that Roon was downgraded due to an installation of a version that changed the database format.”
Yes the Roon Server in the downloaded ROCK image is not up to date. Currently this leads to the remote crashing when remotes are current. In this case, initiating the ROCK update from the remote is not possible.
To trigger the ROCK update in this case, go to http://rock admin page in a browser and click the Reinstall button for Operating System. This should then also update the Roon Server version to the current build 1223
