I’ve upgraded today to openhab 2.3 release (openhabian on raspberry pi).
I had snapshot jar in addons directory, and after uninstalling it using karaf and installing it again, the ZWave binding not working.
(I had jar, I deleted it, removed it from karaf and reinstalling the offical zwave binding)
In paper UI I see this error on ZWAVE Stick:
Status: OFFLINE - COMMUNICATION_ERROR Serial Error: Port /dev/ttyACM0 does not exist
And can’t see any zwave node thing.
In Habmin I see all the zwave node things and the controller event looks green.
Your zwave network exists in the usb disk. so when you reinstall everything including the z-wave binding, and you run the discovery option, all your nodes will be found. of course you need to create everything again, channels, rules etc so better get a backup before doing so.
Is there a “good” way to upgrade OH2.2 running an older zwave security snapshot binding (mine is from March) to OH2.3 with the zwave security binding in the distro without breaking everything? I’d like to upgrade but am afraid since moving from the release OH2.2 binding to the snapshot required recreating everything…
The inclusion information is stored on your zwave controller, your things and channels are stored in your JsonDB (if you did not manually configure them through text files).
There is almost never the need to exclude or include devices again.
So yes, do a backup and then restore your settings: https://www.openhab.org/docs/installation/linux.html#backup-and-restore
