I spent 2 days upgrading… taking good backups along the way. I managed to finally load up the most recent UI7 firmware yesterday, and everything was working well. The new ui is definitely fresh but man, it sucks. Anyway, I decided to give it a shot and stick with it.
Later that afternoon, I replaced the batteries in a few of the Aeotec door window sensors.
After that, I got an error “zwave failed to start”. So I went around to the devices and re-seated the batteries as this had solved a similar problem weeks ago. That didn’t work this time.
So I decided to downgrade the UI7 firmware and restore my known good backup. Same error.
I then decided to revert back to UI. That loaded OK, and I restored my known good backup. That too gives me “zwave failed to start”. The log file doesn’t give me much useful information but I did see mention of “previously upgraded” floating around in there.
- Does anyone have any idea on how to troubleshoot the zwave failed to start message
- Or why moving down to UI5 wouldn’t work?
Kind of stuck and frustrated.
