Update 2.2.5 Broke Everything!!

Post by mcfanda » 15 Nov 2016 11:31

Just made firmware update to 2.2.5 and now smarthome does not work at all!!
Devices are still there in the expert mode. In the SmartHome interface there is no device. Rooms previously defined are still there, but no device present.

I observed the same with v2.2.3-rc2.

(Reminder: unless instructed explicitly by the developers one should not use these release candidates!)

Update: v2.2.5 has been updated 15-Nov-2016 10:29

I think it is a maintenance release of version 2.2. It is the first time I see them making an update on a version, while they are already working on the next.
I think it is good move for users that they do this. Hopefully this grows into a kind of long term stability version....?

Do you have any solution for this? My house is basically back to stone age :-)

This has worked for me to restore the last working installation using the console:

Code: Select all

sudo service z-way-server stop
cd /opt
// Move  latest installation to a distinctive folder
sudo mv -f z-way-server z-way-server-225
// Find the name of your last working version (it has the date of installing the next version in it's name
dir
// Move old installation to default folder e.g. z-way-server_2016-11-15-10-52-09
sudo mv -f z-way-server_2016-11-15-10-52-09 z-way-server 
sudo service z-way-server start
Hope this works. I had to write this from memory.

The lack of changelog updates is more then a bit annoying at this point. I know it's menial kinda annoying work, but please... track what you updated, z-way devs!

ChangeLog is always available here: http://razberry.z-wave.me/z-way-server/ChangeLog
Sometimes it comes a day after actual release for technical reasons
