Only 4 devices coming over on upgrade (VeraLite to Plus)
« on: December 31, 2017, 04:28:17 pm »
I'm upgrading from VeraLite to VeraPlus. I've saved a backup (with a recent z-wave network backup) of the VeraLite, and tried to restore it to the VeraPlus without success.

Only 4 devices come over: PLEG, VeraAlerts, MultiSwitch, and RGBController (hmm... all of those are "virtual" devices).

I also get PLEG "exceeded free limits", so I bought another license and activated it, but the old license always comes over when I wipe and restore. I assume that's not causing the problem, but I mention it just in case.

Any tips on how I can make more progress? Am I doing the "upgrade" process more or less correctly?

I know I can (should) rebuild everything from scratch, but I'm obviously trying to avoid that. The VeraPlus has been sitting in a box, and I figure I can live with the existing minor problems?things can't be any worse on better hardware, right?

FYI, the VeraLite was on a fairly old firmware (because updating was often problematic). I updated the VeraPlus before restoring/uploading.

Thank you.

I'm about to go through the same process, upgrading from veralite to vera plus.  Did you figure out your issue? 

From what I've read, if we don't have the veralite still operational then the transfer won't work properly.  Here's the link I found:

About to do the same thing from Vera Light to Vera plus.
I have read all the issues back as far as 2014 and thought this might have all been sorted
Found that same link above so trying to work out if I should just start again from scratch or try and copy everything over.
What a headache

"we recommend:
Remove and repair the devices that are failing after the transfer, and/or
If the Z-Wave network isn?t very large, we recommend resetting the whole network and re-including all the devices on the new controller. "

Wow.  really?   :-(

Yeah I'm having similar issue. Do not follow that guide, according to tech support guy that I spoke it it's outdated and incorrect.
Also when I tried to upgrade firmware on my VeraLite to latest it got bricked and now completely dead.
Restoring backup didn't work either, all devices will show up but none will respond...
