Hue Bridge Status Unknown

Hi all,

OpenHAB 3.4.3. Hue bridge v2.

This has worked fine for a couple of years but lights stopped responding a couple of days ago.

I stopped the Hue Bridge thing and when I restart, it just goes into status “Unknown”.

The bridge IP is correct and I can ping from the openHAB server to the bridge.

I enabled debug logging, but all it gives is this:

2024-07-10 14:55:17.240 [DEBUG] [ue.internal.handler.HueBridgeHandler] - Disposing Hue Bridge handler ...

2024-07-10 14:55:18.638 [DEBUG] [ue.internal.handler.HueBridgeHandler] - Initializing Hue Bridge handler ...

I deleted the thing and when I try and re-add it the same happens. The username field remains blank, despite pressing the pairing button on the bridge.

Not sure how to proceed, especially as the logs are empty?

After a reboot of openHAB / restart of openHAB services all is well again.
