    Thank you that sorted it.
    It was the PERL command that got me.

    How do I run the script on the z-wave backup to generate the bin file for the Aotec Z-stick tool.
    I never posted the detailed procedure because the other poster figured it out on his own. From post #37
    1. Download Perl: http://strawberryperl.com/download/5....0.1-64bit.msi. Run the installer, answering all prompts with the default answer.
    2. Download Aeotec Z-Stick Gen5 Backup Tool to your Downloads folder. Unzip this, will create folder "Z-Stick Gen5 Backup Tool"
    3. Download the script archive from post #14. Open this and copy the file named ZWave-to-zme.pl to the "Z-Stick Gen5 Backup Tool" folder created in step (2).
    4. Locate the Z-Wave backup you want to restore. These are in the Data/Z-Wave folder under the HS3/4 application root. It'll have a .ZWave extension. Copy this file to the "Z-Stick Gen5 Backup Tool" folder as well.
    5. Open a Windows cmd shell (from Windows search, enter 'cmd' and select 'Command Prompt application') and navigate to the "Z-Stick Gen5 Backup Tool" folder from step (2): commands cd Downloads; cd "Z-Stick Gen5 Backup Tool"
    6. Run the ZWave-to-zme.pl script: command perl ZWave-to-zme.pl Your_backup.ZWave replacing Your_backup.ZWave with the file copied in step (3). This will create memory image file Your_backup.ZWave.bin
    7. Make sure your new controller device is in place. Determine what COM port it is on, and ensure that its not connected in the Z-Wave plugin.
    8. Start the Aeotec application: command zwave_500.exe ... Aeotec GUI will open.
    9. Select Settings->Port and select the COM port of your new device. Message 'Load ZStick Success' should appear at the bottom.
    10. Select 'Write EPROM'. This opens a file chooser; navigate and select the Your_backup.ZWave.bin file created in step (6).
    11. On completion popup 'Eeprom Write Finish ... ' appears ... you're done!

    Trying to replace a flacky z-wave.me with aotec on a win 10 server with HS4Pro

    Looked at the Zensys tools but cannot get any sense out of it.

    Think I might be getting too old for this tech, either that or lockdown is scrambling what brain I have.

    Thanks for the conversion script. Worked great for my Z-Stick S2 to Gen5 upgrade. Never noticed the pluging let's you backup all you want but not restore.
    Very happy now.

    Hello,

    Thank you zwolfpack and others! With the instructions in this thread, I was finally able to transfer zwave network from UZB stick to Z-Net (EU version).

    Excellent. I should have suggested the Aeotec tool given the success reported in post #39.

    Yes, I tried several times with both UZB's.

    After my excercise I saw the remark in post#31 and I gave Z-stick Gen5 backup Tool a try. It worked flawlessly.

    So I would like to thank my fellow countryman Lou for his hint.

    If the controller works with HS4, I'd expect it to work with the ZWave.me updater tool as well. I have seen the tool fail occasionally but work on second try.

    I've not tested on a Raspberry Pi 4.

    Does reading of either of the UZB's fail the in same way?

    I am using a USB Z-Wave.me controller with HS4 on a RaspberryPi4 with PiOS.
    I want to program my spare controller (also Z-Wave.me) and folowed the instruction that I found on this thread.
    If I create a backup of the current NVRAM contents I get an error message that reading the NVM data failed:

    Code:
    using port /dev/ttyACM0...
    
    Z-WAVE Serial API Tool
    Version:LWE0.9
    by Z-WAVE>ME
    
    Openning port .............................. OK
    Reading NVM data .............................. FAILED
    
    Error 0 returned 1 for ACK
    
    Reading NVM data [===============> ] (31%)
    Error 1 returned 12 for ACK
    etc, etc.
    I disabled the controller before this backup procudure.

    Any ideas where it goes wrong?

    Holy ****! It worked! I ran the script using Perl and wrote the output file to the UZB using the Backup Tool. Now all Homeseer devices have their original node numbers and the network works.
    You have my deepest thanks! Many of you on here know the PITA of re including all devices and thanks to zwolfpack I don't have to do it. I don't think I ever came this close to a xmas miracle before 🎄😂

    Downloaded, unzipped and installed! I also found the backup file. However, the file is only 1 KB in size. Is that normal or could there be a problem there already?

    Thanks very much for your time and help.

    I'm afraid I have no experience with Linux. Was hoping for something that runs on Windows.

    HomeSeer 3 + ZWave Plugin : 3.0.2.0 or Beta 3.0.2.5


    Many thanks

    Run away, run away from the 3.0.2.5 Z-Wave beta. Trashier than my doggie poop pail.

    3.0.2.0 is the most stable I've found, and it still needs restarting every 3.5 hours!
