Restore problem

Post by Arek » 10 Oct 2019 16:37

Hello,
I had to reinstall Raspbian. I want to restore my backup file (ZAB). Before I've done it in UI expert there was my devices (without names and details but there was 20 devices). I didn't restore Z-Wave network -> there was no devices. Reboot didn't help. So I try with Z-Wave network -> even worst. Can I do something with it or not?

Hello,

I have the same problem: https://forum.z-wave.me/viewtopic.php?f=3420&t=32943

Unfortunately still without solution. All backups are making the Z-way UI go astray. After each try I have to reinstall Raspbian.

The hints in the UI about the possible causes unfortunately do not apply, the controller is connected and recognizes the devices before the restore.

You have to check the RaZberry port configuration. Is it /dev/ttyAMA0 ? Are you using RaZberry?

Thanks PoltoS, I figured it out on my own yesterday and here is a more a more detailed description:

As so often it is trivial. The problem is the UI port of the controller. The serial port of the controller has to be adjusted under Applications/Active Apps. For the GPIO Z-Wave controller it is /dev/ttyAMA0. For the USB stick /dev//dev/ttyACM0

I found some hints here: https://forum.z-wave.me/viewtopic.php?t=24707

Dear friends of zwave.me: you should urgently work on the documentation and the support, so that Z-Wave finally gets out of the handicraft corner. I assume that the majority of users have already invested a lot of money in this solution and can therefore expect more professionalism.
