Solved: Z-Way installation using Razberry openHAB Connector does not exist

Quick update.
As the documentation is not ‘so complete’, I missed to activate the openHAB connector in z-wave.me.
I will now make a new install and test from the beginning and take few screenshots to document what I exactly did. Hope this will help others.

Hi All,
I have just setup my Openhab system on the Rspi 3 together with the Razberry piggy-back for z-wave communication and I can not get it to work.
I have created the openhab SD card, using the complete image as provided on openhab.
then I followed this instruction for the razberry installation:


I installed the z-wave.me like this:
wget -q -O - support.zwave.eu/libs | sudo bash
wget -q -O - http://razberry.z-wave.me/install | sudo bash

Started the z-wave.me GUI and added the PassWord.
Activated the z-Wave App.

within openhab I did as stated in the GETTING_STARTED.md
I put the PassWord as defined for the z-wave.me GUI into the Password field of the configuration of the Z-Way server
What I did different from the GETTING_STARTED.md, as the diectory openhab2 does not exist, I unpacked it all into the openhabian/addons, after creating this directory
Now I get the following error message:
Status: OFFLINE - HANDLER_INITIALIZING_ERROR openHAB Connector doesn’t exist in Z-Way server

I checked the directory and it is available on my Pi:
/opt/z-way-server/automation/userModules/OpenHABConnector
(I assume it must be written without the space)

What is missing?
Is it necessary to follow exactly the installation order? first z-wave.me and then openhab? I have done it so far the other way round, as I have the image for openhab installed.

I assume when all is fine and working i can remove the tasks from z-wave.me:
sudo update-rc.d z-way-server remove
sudo update-rc.d readKey remove
sudo update-rc.d mongoose remove

any help highly appreciated

I stumbled upon this thread while looking for help for the Z-Way Server not starting properly after being installed on openHABian. No errors during install and no obvious indication why the server would not start properly. The first “wget” command below solved this for me. So I just note this down here, for anyone else who might search for Z-Way startup issues on openHABian.
