my items seem to not be fully initialized when the rules are executed.
After starting up Openhab2, when my rules are executed, I get ‘item x cannot be found’ error messages.
Which item can’t be found varies from time to time.
The problem is that the respecting rule with the error stops working completely.
Interestingly, when I then edit the rules file and do a dummy change, the rules file is refreshed and the rules start working properly.
It seems that the rules are executed at an too early stage. I do not use system startup rules, my rules are only triggered on item changes or by cron pattern.
I use Openhab2 beta 3, but I had the same behaviour in older snapshots.
Thanks for your help!
Same problem here also for ‘System started’ rules.
Any advices so far?
