Apologies for this very newbie question from a non-programmer but I am stuck, can’t find the answer in the doc and need help. I can’t get my EMBER Zigbee coordinator to work after a reboot - it works well after first installation, and the serial port specs in the OpenHAB coordinator config have not changed after reboot. I have read the following in the OpenHAB Zigbee binding documentation:
If the USB dongle is not recognized, it might be necessary to make the dongle’s device id known to the CP240x driver by Silicon Labs:
Where do I enter the step-by-step commands indicated in the documentation to enter the device id?? I have logged onto the OpenHAB command console via SSH and tried the commands but it does not recognise them.
Any helping soul out there??
- Platform information:
- Hardware: Raspberry 3 + Ember013
- OS: Linux 5.15.32-v7+
- Java Runtime Environment: 11.0.15
- openHAB version:3.2.00
How did you do that ?
Did you login to the linux shell or did you login to the karaf console ( which is not correct ) ?
maybe the nrjavaserial bug? read more here
Thank you - indeed I was in the karaf console which was wrong. After a bit of testing around with various passwords and realizing that the Linux shell is accessible through port :22 I managed to run the commands but also an update of my system which fixed the problem! Many thanks for the help!
Thank you! This was fixed in the 3.3 version so an update to my system took care of the problem. Thank you for pointing me to the solution!
Have you restarted to test if it works?
I shouted too early. After the second and third restart it did not work again…Now I tried to follow the instructions in the documentation to set the address of the coordinator, using the following commands:
echo la86 7523 > /sys/bus/usb-serial/drivers/cp210x/new_id
The last command is not accepted with the error message
bash: echo: write error: Invalid argument
I really don’t know what I am doing and don’t want to mess things up by trial and error…I see that in the documentation text there is a reference to the CP240x, but the command says CP210x, could this be the problem. Another hypothesis, I have entered all spaces in the command as I see them in the manual, could this be wrong. And, the coordinator address shows up as la86:7523 but the syntax in the command in the documentation is la86 7523.
Any kind help in advising me what to do next??
