VeraEdge died, restoring to new VeraSecure
« on: July 11, 2018, 07:06:38 pm »
My VeraEdge died.  We had several brownouts during a storm.  I have several backups on 2 computers, all named "ha-gateway-backup*.tgz".   I've restored several to the VeraSecure but can't seem to get it to work.  I check the "Restore Z-Wave network" check box and drag a file to the GUI.

When the VeraSecure comes back online I see all the devices in the web interface, but it can't communicate with any of them.  "Can't Detect Device".

I have hard wired devices and battery devices.  GE Smart Dimmers, GE Fan Controllers, Schlage locks, Mini-motes, etc, etc.

What does a backup file look like when it has the z-wave information in it?  I'm sure that not all of my backups were done with the z-wave backup done.  Most of them are from all the firmware releases.

Should I just continue to 'go back in time' until I find a random backup that has z-wave info in it?  Is there some other secret?

I've tried the 'Update Neighbor Nodes'.  I think that just updates the GUI with more devices that it can't connect to, lol.
