  • Zwave restore not working - homeID not reflashed

    Hi all,
    any ideas on this little problem?

    I've got 252 of the zwave PI and performing a restore does NOT work - could be to do with my controller node is at address 108? I've got a UZB stick.

    So, it seems to do a reset, sets a temporary home ID, then never flashes the old home ID - any ideas on what to actually do?

    Any help appreciated, I really don't want to start from scratch for 40+ nodes and hundreds of events

    This is an ongoing issue. My system was working fine then all when to hell and no more restores. The only thing that happened anywhere near that time was a memory leak causing the system to run out of memory. The only way I've been able to do a restore to a SmartStick+ is to put the SS+ on the computer then move it once it's restored. However that didn't work with the UZB.

      So try installing HS on another system and see if the restore works on that?

        Ok, so I found a post jon00 made on how to upgrade my UZB, as it was only at 5.2 luckily.

        Followed the instructions, but needs the extra service restart otherwise it doesn't present the firmware page.

        There's another thread which discusses the problem confirming 5.4 and 5.5 working. Decided to go to 5.4, and then did a restore - SUCCESS!!

        It's definitely a zwave PI issue - very PI and firmware specific, and 5.4 firmware with the latest zwave beta does NOT allow a restore at all.
