I am wondering about the (I believe new) option 04 | Import config in the openHABian Configuration Tool. I was hoping I could use this option instead of a full restore (51) to only import my configuration of things, items etc., but the tool always fails with error message “Restoration of selected openHAB configuration failed”.
I was trying to find some documentation on this option, but no luck. Even when selecting 00 | About openHABian, and also in the documentation, the screenshots of the main menu don’t even show this option (this is why I am thinking it is new )
Menu 51 is to restore openhab configuration based on a backup of the openhab configuration stored in /var/lib/openhab/backups.
Menu 04 uses an URL or a file at /boot/initial.zip. See openHABian | openHAB .restore_openhab_config
In both cases the file will be restored by calling the same function which is restore_openhab_config .
If it doesn’t work run openhabian in debug mode to get more information about the root cause of the problem.
The error message seems to be created for cases when the path/file name that you entered does not exist.
