Not starting after power shutdown

  • Platform information:
    • Hardware: AMD Athlon X2
    • OS: Win 7
    • Java Runtime Environment:
    • openHAB version: 2.3.0
  • Issue of the topic: The start.bat is not working after power off without logout / shutdown of the service

I got a power shutdown without a logout of openHAB itself.
Now I am not able to restart it by using start.bat or start_debug.bat.
The only message I get is: “Launching the openHAB runtime…
INFORMATION: There are not tasks running with the given information (translated by me from german, may be different in english versions)
There is a Root instance already running with the name openhab and pid 2376”

There is no openhab running, no instance with the PID 2376.
I found something regarding the karaf instance files but I can not find them in this windows environment.

Can someone please help me restarting openHAB?

Best regards

Hi Christian,

I had the same error in the past.

back then i saved my items and sitemaps files locally. reinstalled openHAB and reloaded the data.
Important: You have to reinstall all your addons.

For the Future: if you want to shutdown your openHAB (for any reason) type in the karaf console "shutdown"
