If this works well and a restore is possible (and all devices still “accept” the new stick as the primary controller, so that no re-include is necessary), I would install a Windows VM on my Mac to get a first step of a backup solution for my OH1 environment.
I have done multiple backups and restores on my win10/64 virtualbox hosted on a linux box. I am using this for copying set-up from one stick to another.
Someone else reported issues under vmware, but it might have been an older version of the tool
It is the one that you have set for your stick in OH2. I don’t really know much about the security stuff, since I don’t have any nodes using it, but it has to be declared since some months back. Not sure how this is done in OH1. (Never used OH1 myself)
Ok, thanks Chris! I’m sorry, but I still have some questions… As I “only” want to get/define this key, do I really have to use the dropbox-zwave-precompiled jar? Or is it sufficient just to define the “zwave:networkKey” in openhab.cfg? Maybe the jar is only necessary if I want to include real security devices (like locks), which I do not plan to do? I am asking because the dropbox-jar is about 3 months old, so it hasn’t the latest zwave code (like this was also mentioned in this thread: https://community.openhab.org/t/updated-z-wave-security-command-class/12045
Well, I haven’t done it yet because the backup tool only exists for WIN and I am a MAC user. But have a look at the Aeotec instructions for backing up the stick (see my link in the first posting). There is mentioned that one need to specify the security key.
Well, I don’t know what that is for, but I suspect you can probably type anything in there. I really can’t see how it can be linked to openhab as we never tell the stick the key we use. In your case, if you’re not using security classes, then the key is NEVER used, so it really can’t have any bearing on the backup.
Hi there, I used the tool, mentioned above to create backup of my Gen 5 USB Stick successfully - got 256kb file. I did not tried to restore it,though
Concerning security key - I just tipped “Read Settings” button, and it showed some current values, which do not seem to be relevant. Flag “Enable Security” I left unchecked. I tipped “Read EEPROM” afterwards and backup started.
