I’ve been wanting to backup the Aeotec controller for a while.
The official tool seems to run on Windows only.
A) There is no built-in backup tool in HA, correct?
B) Can I move the stick around and use it in a Windows box while doing the backing and put back to the RPi that runs HA without breaking anything?
I do the move-to-windows-then back and there are no issues, but you have to restart home assistant.
To restart, I automated it with udev rules, see this script
This maps the stick to /dev/zwave always, and also runs a script when it’s plugged in
Add the command to restart home assistant to /bin/x-hass-restart-zwave-replug and then do
chmod +x /bin/x-hass-restart-zwave-replug
This will also restart home assistant if usb has a hick up…
Successfully backed it up and saved the security key to Lastpass.
yaml files to git as well
Out of curiosity, what is there to back-up on the stick itself?
The stick holds your zwave config. Network layout, nodes, their neighbors, encryption key etc etc. Without a backup you would be running around having to include every device once again.
this espescially sucks if you got fibaro dimmer inside your wall switch… Thats how I found this thread…
Has anyone found a backup solution for OSX - GUI or bash?
Would be great if it was possible from HA itself, but I guess that is rather and edge case for someone to develop as the Windows tool would have to be re-engineered.
