Help! SD card corrupted, how to keep existing devices?

Post by dromer1967 »

Hi,

Help!

Unfortunately my SD card is corrupted so my PI stopped working.

I am now formatting a new SD card but does that mean that my ZWAVE configured devices are gone also?

If not what is the correct path to follow to keep my existing ZWAVE network including all paired devices while using a fresh SD card?

Before the crash I was running software version 2.0.0

Regards,
Peter

Paired devices are stored on the board's chip itself, so they won't be lost even if the SD card is dead.
But SD card contained a file storing all the values and interview states for devices, so you'll need to re-interview them. Also if you have some secure devices, you'll need to re-include them, because the network key is lost.

I noticed indeed that the configuration was kept after installing a new SD card. Only the device names were lost and it took quite some time to get all devices to re-interview but that's no big deal.

Luckily I'm up and running again.
