Item linked to old z-wave node

I had a binary sensor item linked to a z-wave multisensor, I excluded and included it again because it wasn’t working properly, but I didn’t unlink or delete the item before I excluded the multisensor.

I have since deleted and recreated the item and linked it to the newly included multisensor, but every time ItemStateChangedEvent occurs, I get the following warning:

2017-06-03 22:13:05.047 [WARN ] [ome.core.thing.internal.ThingManager] - Cannot delegate update ‘OFF’ for item ‘Hallway_Sensor_PIR’ to handler for channel ‘zwave:device:07449ecd:node19:sensor_binary’, because no thing with the UID ‘zwave:device:07449ecd:node19’ could be found.

node19 was the old node before I excluded it, it is now zwave:device:07449ecd:node25.

Can I manually update the UID to point to the new node?

I’ve used a new name for the item and I no longer see the warning in the logs, so it seems there’s a phantom item that still exists.

If I create a new item with the old name I start seeing the warning again.

I’ve had this happen a few times where an entry gets left in the jsondb database for an old item. You can also manually edit the file to eliminate the sections that reference the old item. I’ve been meaning to report this to @Kai but haven’t been able to figure out a way to consistently replicate the behavior.

Many thanks, you were right, the old item was at the end of the file, referencing the old (dead) node19.
