Vera 3 upgrading to 1.7.919 - Zwave LED very slow flash
« on: March 10, 2017, 10:28:36 pm »
Vera 3 UI7 message loops continually with:

ZWave: Failed To Start
ZWave: This device appears not to offer Z-Wave communications

Also saw continual ZWave reset calls in the log with:
lu_action
SoftReset
urn:micasaverde-com:serviceId:ZWaveNetwork1

Log file indicates:

Everything else appears OK. Research of the forum suggests the ZWave firmware is none functional for some reason (incorrect firmware inserted into IC?). Resetting the ZWave IC via the UI makes no difference.

Restored the previously working main firmware 1.7.902 but problem remains.

How to fix ZWave firmware?

Took a chance and reflashed the ZWave chip using the script below; the "1" flag means stand alone. I don't recommend doing this unless you are desperate. The script stops the LUUP engine, works out what ZWave firmware to use and then zaps it to the ZWave chip. ZWave LED then stayed on, as it should.

Code: [Select]
/usr/bin/UpdateZWaveFirmware.sh 1
The log of what happened can be found here:

Code: [Select]
/var/log.UpgradeZwaveFW
Rebooted and logged in via the UI. Went to the list of backups maintained by MCV and backed up from a known good one, with the ZWave check box, checked.

Once that was done - can take some time on big systems eg 30 minutes or more - waited a bit, rebooted and refreshed the browser and everything worked again.

This all started due to lack of space on Vera 3 when upgrading:
