Hello, I know this has been discussed a little bit, but I have some questions about the node xml files. First, a little context:
I run my OH instance on a RPi3 (not openhabian), in the official Openhab Docker container. I use a script to grab the zwave and jsondb config directories from userdata, compress them, and export them from the container. From there, I’m able to commit the configs to source control, and keep them versioned. Because of this, I redeploy my installation every time I make a config change. I didn’t know about the xml files until well after having set up this workflow. Because of this, only about half of my zwave devices have node files generated.
As I understand it, this will just cause the binding to have to regenerate that data upon installation, but there shouldn’t be any other issues as a result of this. However, I’d like to now recreate those files so that I can commit them. The weird thing is that the files I DO have were generated automatically without me doing anything special, but there are still a bunch of nodes missing them. One question I have is, should all zwave devices have a node xml file? Or do some devices not create them?
Another issue I’m having is that the Habmin Zwave Network Viewer is showing several of the nodes as not connected to anything. I was hoping wondering if missing node files might be causing this? And if so, would I be able to define which nodes each device should be connected to?
Thanks for your help.
