[SOLVED] MapDB persistence service not starting

Hi everyone,

I have trouble getting MapDB running which I want to use to restore the item states on startup.

First of all my configuration:

  • Hardware: Raspberry Pi 3
  • OS: openhabianpi-raspbian-201712171718-git30faec3-crccc053823.img
  • Java Runtime Environment: not sure, I didn’t change anything from the installed OS
  • openHAB version: 2.2.0 release build

These are my already taken steps:

  1. I installed the MapDB service from PaperUI
  2. In services/runtime.cfg, I set the default persistence service to mapdb
  1. In services/mapdb.cfg it set the interval and same state setting
# the commit interval in seconds (optional, default to '5')

# issue a commit even if the state did not change (optional, defaults to 'false')
  1. I configured persistence/mapdb.persist
Strategies {
        default = everyUpdate

Items {
        // persist all items on every change and restore them from the db at startup
        * : strategy = everyChange, restoreOnStartup
  1. I performed a reboot twice

However, the MapDB persistence service is not even once mentioned in the logs (only loading the mapdb.persist file).
Did I miss anything?

Thank you very much for your help!

nevermind, the service seems to be perfectly running, however, there is no entry in the logs at all.
I thought there were supposed to be some entries since I saw these in other topics in the community.
