Wrong IP address displayed at login (solved)

Hi,

I just installed a complete new version of openHABian (1.3 / 2.1.0-1) on a RPI3 and installation was succesful!
One of the first things I did was to change the dynamic into a static ip address using https://parg.co/Uuc
Also this went ok except that after logging over SSH, still the old (dynamic) IP is shown:

While my new (static) IP address is 192.168.2.23, what is wrong?

-ben

Do not know why but issue solved. This morning when I logged in again, it showed the correct address.

…have exactly the same issue… can anyone explain / give a solution?
The start/welcome screen of openhab (ssh) always shows a wrong IP address, which does not fit to one of the addresses displayed when entering:

ip a

Does the start screen show the IP address of the (inactive/no cable connected) LAN-Port (RJ45) of the RaspPi? --> no, because “ip a” shows no ip address at eth0: NO CARRIER… DOWN…

Platform information:
    Hardware: Raspberry 2 with RaZberry2
    WLAN-dongle: VILROS 802.11n
    OS: Raspian stretch
    Java Runtime Environment: ?
    openHAB version: 2.2
Issue of the topic: wrong IP address is shown in openhab start screen (ssh)

Oh my god, I am so late for the party! :grin:

But as I just stumbled upon this and it is not marked as solved, here’s the explanation and how to fix it:

The table you see when you log in is created by FireMotD

This tool does not collect its information when you log in, no, it’s cached in /usr/share/firemotd/data/FireMotD.json

If you change something, you have to update this cache.

You can do so by executing sudo /usr/local/bin/FireMotD -S -D all.
Or just wait a day, this is done automatically each night.

that’s why I think it is useful not to close threads after a few weeks.
I did not hav this problem but to me it is a useful information helping to better understand the basics.

Thanks
