FGWPB-121 Not in Database - but it is

Hi Scott, thanks for the reply - I avoided expanding so as not to introduce new issues (my passing aquaintance with Linux), but as you’re here I’ll explain.

My install does indeed use a kar file - that’s not something I chose and I suppose it must be the default with openhabian. Running the script leaves nothing in either openhab.log or events.log. Script output below. I reset the openhab password this afternoon so I know that that is correct, but the output reads to me like an authorisation issue:

Script version: 1.2.8

 *****     SUMMARY     *****

Addons path: /usr/share/openhab2/addons
openHAB account: openhab
Requested action: Install or upgrade Z-Wave binding
Current openHAB snapshot version: 2.5.10
Requested Z-Wave version: Development

Is this correct?

  1. Yes, start now
  2. No, take me back to the first menu
  3. Exit
    #? 1

Uninstalling any managed binding(s) and installing serial transport…
… if prompted for a password for the Karaf console, the default password is ‘habopen’…

Logging in as openhab
No more authentication methods available
… a ‘No matching bundles’ error mesage is normal, if a binding had not been previously installed.

Backing up and uninstalling any unmanaged installs of Z-Wave…

!!! It has taken more than two minutes to uninstall the Z-Wave binding, so exiting !!!

openhab-cli info gives:

Version: 2.5.10-SNAPSHOT (#246)

User: openhab (Active Process 28091)
User Groups: openhab tty dialout sudo audio bluetooth gpio

Directories: Folder Name | Path | User:Group
----------- | ---- | ----------
OPENHAB_HOME | /usr/share/openhab2 | openhab:openhab
OPENHAB_RUNTIME | /usr/share/openhab2/runtime | openhab:openhab
OPENHAB_USERDATA | /var/lib/openhab2 | openhab:openhab

OPENHAB_BACKUPS | /var/lib/openhab2/backups | openhab:openhab


There are several warnings in the docs and in the script itself… you should not use the development version of the binding unless specifically told to do so. Sorry for the confusion! I should really remove that option all together. You are looking for the snapshot version.

Unpacking openhab2 (2.5.10~S248-1) over (2.5.10~S246-1)

The repository updated at some point over the past 12 hours and the new plugs are now recognised.

Thank you everyone for the assistance in getting this sorted.
