Hi I’ve upgraded to V3 a few months ago. Upgrade seemed to go reasonably ok.
Was using the embedded MQTT broker successfully in OH2. This continued to work after the upgrade although I understand it’s no longer available in 3. A few weeks ago it stopped working so I decided to remove and go with Mosquito. I couldn’t really see how to remove as it’s no longer referenced in the UI. I removed some references to it from things files and removed a related. Bin file.
Installed Mosquito via openhabian-config. Install seemed to go ok.
Problem is when I try to add a broker thing and connect it to the MQTT server, it won’t. I’ve tried with and without authentication. I can see a log for Mosquito and there are some entries for my existing devices trying to connect to it. Tried restarting it via sysctl and it seems to restart ok.
-Anyone have any pointers as to how to get to the bottom of this?
-Also I see it’s possible to install a System MQTT broker from the UI. From what I read an external broker was recommended, any advice on this?
