Entire Z Wave network nonresponsive
« on: November 23, 2016, 11:22:45 am »
So about 3 days ago, I noticed some weird behavior among my z wave devices, then eventually all of them became non-responsive.  I couldn't even exclude devices.  I was about ready to throw Vera in the river and run to another provider.  The only reason I did not was that everything else was working fine, so I clearly had a z wave issue.  I figured a device was flooding the network with noise but after turning off devices one at a time, I was getting nowhere.

I have a VeraPlus and kept my old Vera 3 as the network router (I think I must be the only vera user to actually use mine as a router, but I like the OpenWrt Backfire).  The Vera 3 still had access to the z wave network but no automation programmed.  I was also unable to control any devices.

Finally, I figured out the problem:  The Vera 3 had gotten reset back as primary controller so not I had two primary controllers (not good).  I was able to copy the network from the VeraPlus to the Vera 3 which put the Vera 3 back as secondary controller.  (Role:Slave SIS: NO PRI: NO)  I am relieved but not really happy that this happened and was so darn difficult to figure out.

Hopefully this post helps somebody else....
