I need your help and support regarding my openhab/velbus installation:
-I’ve done a fresh install on an new server with the same openhab version 3.2.0 as my old server
-I’ve backed up the config from the old server (my Nas)
- Both my NAS and the new server running Version 3.2.0 (Build) on Debian distro.
-After restoring that backup —> blank page + service disconnecting in loop every few minutes, so I gave up…
I decided then to configure everything from scratch on the new server:
-Installed the velbus addon: OK
-I’m stuck at the bridge detection: it is a Velbus USB Serial Bridge, “VMB1USB” over the usb port “port”: “/dev/ttyACM0”
If I remeber properly , few years ago , this one just appeared in the list then I just configured it according the Usb port etc…
-I’ve added a VMB1USB.things file with the line below, in /etc/openhab/things and rebooted but still can’t detect it:
Bridge velbus:bridge:1 [ port="/dev/ttyACM0, reconnectionInterval=“15” ]
- I compared in the /etc/openhab/things of the Nas: no .things file in there
The difference now VS few years ago is I have the Signum: this one appears automatically in the things
Did the signum took the preference over the VMB1USB? I don’t think so…both should be seen normally, no?
Also after a Scan, I cannot detect the other devices thru the Signum : tried both 80 and 8080 ports which are green and 27015 : red
Just to remind you that the Signum is the Velbus Server solution based on a Raspberry motherboard, it has both Network and Serial Bridge function.
I can only add manually but VMB1USB is not present as it is a Bridge.
Do you think that it could be because of a Velbus addon update that removed the VMB1USB?
-Already uninstalled/ re-installed the Velbus binding…
-Already replaced the USB cable from the server to the USB serial interface
Maybe it is something obvious but I can’t see it!!!
I’m starting to be out of idea.
My next step would be to remove the signum from the network like that it will not interfere with the others bridges…
I will also open the things json file in the jsondb folder and paste in it the VMB1USB config lines copied from the backed up config and give a try…
