Controller backup doesn't work - Windows OS

Post by Ricard1 »

Hi,

Installed 3.0.6 on Win10 OS.

Anyone got Controller Backup and Restore working?

I will not use a Z-Wave Controller in my system as long it does not support Backup function... I have UZB Stick but never got Backup working :(
So, meanwhile that might be fixed I use Aeotech Gen5 Z-Stick (with Domoticz) because Aeotech have at least Backup working for their Z-Stick.

When trying to make a UZB Backup in Expert UI I get this error...

We will check it. Looks like some Windows specific issue.

Meanwhile you can save config/zddx/* - this is the what you need for restore.

Thank you, I think there is a reason to check even z-way system backup/restore under Windows.... :)

The command you mention to backup controller /zddx/* please explain some more how to use it? I tried to insert in the above url in some variants but did not manage, sorry.

I hope built in function may be easy fixed for you as it is a Windows build issue.

Appreciate very much if you can look into this, then I can say bye bye to my Aeotec Z-Stick :)

Cheers!

We will check and fix it for next release.

As for the workaround, you can just copy one file. Go in Z-Way folder, then config/zddx and find the file with your home id. It contains all the data you need for expert UI

Hmm... I want to make an backup of the UZB Controller itself, is that data included in the "home ID file"?
