A few days ago my raspi experienced a crash, and would not boot up anymore. I had to reinstall openhabian and then restore from the openhab backup files using the “sudo openhab-cli restore”, making sure the right bundles were installed in karaf, the right port set up for the z-stick gen 5 and the works. However, despite all this the thing config list in the habmin would remain greyed out with a question mark. The paperui states that the things are “uninitialized-bridge_uninitialized”. New items would not show up in the inbox either.
So finally, I restored the z-stick. This has changed things a bit so that now the old things are still grayed out, but it is discovering/picking up things in the inbox.
So here’s a question: since I have a fairly large amout of z-wave things, adding them again, setting up channels and so on with right naming convention would be a major pain: is there a way to force openhab/zwave to use the existing thing config - or copy the existing config to the new device ID? For example: the ZW096 Z-wave Smart Switch old id is zwave:device:52b1bacc:node3 and the new one is showing up as zwave:device:622caf76:node3 . So if i could somehow (within internal openhab db I assume?) point the new id to the old config, it would be a real life saver.
Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
