After Migration from 4.0.0 to 4.1.1 openhab totaly down is in Nirvana / working with openhabian

I’ve just seen your edit saying that you got your system working. Sometimes it does take several reboots and clearing the cache to get the system running after an upgrade. I’ve found OH4.1 to be very very stable, the most stable release I’ve used since I started on 1.4. Or was it 1.6? I can’t remember, it was so long ago.

Have the errors with the openweathermap, shelly and upnp things stopped appearing in the log? If not I would recommend tidying up those things/items to get a nice clean log. It will help you see any other errors or warnings in the log in future.

You may have already done this but I find it useful to configure logging of my most used bindings to separate log files. You can do this by editing the log4j2.xml file and adding two sections:

		<!-- Z-Wave -->
		<RollingRandomAccessFile append="true" fileName="${sys:openhab.logdir}/zwave.log" filePattern="${sys:openhab.logdir}/zwave.log.%i" immediateFlush="true" name="ZWAVE">
						<Pattern>%d{yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss.SSS} [%-5.5p] [%-50.50c] - %m%n</Pattern>
						<SizeBasedTriggeringPolicy size="10 MB"/>
				<DefaultRolloverStrategy max="4"/>


		<!-- ZWAVE -->
		<Logger additivity="false" level="DEBUG" name="org.openhab.binding.zwave">
				<AppenderRef ref="ZWAVE"/>

What is the issue with the zwave devices you use? If they aren’t supported by the binding there is a DB of devices you can check to see if they’re supported. There’s also a very interesting thread on using zwave-js-ui instead of the zwave binding that you might find useful.

I’m sorry you’ve had a frustrating time with the upgrade and felt you were railroaded into migrating from an NVMe to an SD card for no good reason to fix your issue. I’ve found the community here (with one notable exception) to be incredibly helpful and generous with their time. Please don’t let this experience put you off OpenHAB and push you away to another system. That is the exact opposite of what anybody here wants.

However, if you do decide to move away I wish you all the best.
