Error while starting zigbee-herdsman Failed to start zigbee

Do you mean this?
I’m pretty sure, yeah.

Hi all!

Did anyone find a solution? I have the same issue, but I am running Home Assistant on a virtual machine on a NUC.
The problem started after I updated my Home Assistant OS to 9.3.

I have a similar configuration in Home Assistant as @mikkelsiggaard , but I have the CC2531 as Zigbee coordinator.

The error I’m getting is:

I tried updating Zigbee2mqtt, but if I do that, the add-on will not start at all…

I’m still a newbee and I’m really stuck here. Can anyone help me out?

I have the same problem:

I have also the same problem!!

Having the same problem! Please, someone help…

I have the same problem too, i.e., it fails to start zigbee-herdsman for reasons unknown. I cannot figure out how to resolve this issue.

My Zigbee chip is Sonoff 3.0 USB Dongle Plus V2.

Hi Marko,

I had the exact same error message and was going in circles trying to figure it out.
Basically there are 2 versions of your stick with the same name.
There is -P version and -E version, as you can see in Supported Adapters | Zigbee2MQTT they actually mentioned it.

So -P version works out of the box but the -E not so much - the one I had.
If you have the -E version, same as me check this youtube video

However, while this did fix an issue of starting the zigbee-herdsman I was still getting a different error, I think ping 600. So I had to remove the newly created mqtt-user and leave that portion blank. Also if you are using RPi make sure dongle is connected to usb2.0 port.

in the end, I used the following configuration.yaml, which automatically added user/pass under mqtt field (not showed here)

homeassistant: true
mqtt:
  server: mqtt://core-mosquitto:1883
serial:
  port: >-
    /dev/serial/by-id/usb-ITEAD_SONOFF_Zigbee_3.0_USB_Dongle_Plus_V2_20220818082811-if00
  adapter: ezsp

Thanks man you made my day, writing the mqtt and serial infos to configuration.yaml of zigbee2mqtt make it works. Also i had to replace localhost with the local IP address…

Hello, i am having the same problem but i am running HA in the HA yellow with an integraded Zigbee adapter. i am a nooby in this so i hope that anyone can help me :slight_smile:

this is the error i am getting:

thank you, it works for me :grinning:

Did you ever get this fixed. I have exactly the same error message, I can’t get z2m running.

I have it running perfectly with this config:

data_path: /config/zigbee2mqtt
socat:
  enabled: false
  master: pty,raw,echo=0,link=/tmp/ttyZ2M,mode=777
  slave: tcp-listen:8485,keepalive,nodelay,reuseaddr,keepidle=1,keepintvl=1,keepcnt=5
  options: "-d -d"
  log: false
mqtt: {}
serial:
  port: /dev/ttyUSB0

However, I can’t remember the exact things I changed, so I guess this is as far as I can help.
But if you have a similar setup as me, you can try it out.

configuration as follows

data_path: /config/zigbee2mqtt
socat:
enabled: false
master: pty,raw,echo=0,link=/tmp/ttyZ2M,mode=777
slave: tcp-listen:8485,keepalive,nodelay,reuseaddr,keepidle=1,keepintvl=1,keepcnt=5
options: “-d -d”
log: false
mqtt: {}
serial:
port: /dev/ttyUSB0
zigbee_herdsman_debug: true

Just had to set it up with the same problem.
localhost didn’t work, so had to put in device ip (I’m running a RasPi4).
your_user and your_password is for the HA user set up for MQTT.

This made it work:

data_path: /config/zigbee2mqtt
socat:
  enabled: false
  master: pty,raw,echo=0,link=/tmp/ttyZ2M,mode=777
  slave: tcp-listen:8485,keepalive,nodelay,reuseaddr,keepidle=1,keepintvl=1,keepcnt=5

So cool, this fixed it for me!!! THANK YOU!!!

Dear all, I have read all the post carefully but still can’t solve my issue.

I can’t maintain my mqtt2zigbee installation up. I always get same error:

Zigbee2MQTT:error 2023-08-19 20:41:52: Error while starting zigbee-herdsman

    at /app/node_modules/@serialport/stream/dist/index.js:111:18

I think the origin of the error could be here:

Error while opening serialport 'Error: Error: No such file or directory, cannot open /dev/ttyUSB0'
    at SerialPort.<anonymous> (/app/node_modules/zigbee-herdsman/src/adapter/deconz/driver/driver.ts:200:28)
    at SerialPort._error (/app/node_modules/@serialport/stream/dist/index.js:75:22)
    at /app/node_modules/@serialport/stream/dist/index.js:111:18

I get that error even after following the steps on this feed and can see properly the ttyUSB0 device when listing under dev$ directory.

Let me tell you that I’m running mosquito-mqtt docker with no issues under Synology NAS and that issue is after installing docker of zigbee2mqtt and try to start up the docker service.

Can someone help me to find the solution to my issue?

From the link in your post:

" Error: Resource temporarily unavailable Cannot lock port

This error occurs when another program is already using (and thus locking) the adapter. You can find out which via the following command: ls -l /proc/[0-9]/fd/ |grep /dev/ttyACM0 (replace /dev/ttyACM0 with your adapter port)."

Have you verified that you do not have something else accessing the port? ZHA for example?

serial:
port: >-
/dev/serial/by-id/usb-ITEAD_SONOFF_Zigbee_3.0_USB_Dongle_Plus_V2_20230525094313-if00
adapter: ezsp

worked for me finally

I have been struggling with the problem of inability to start for two weeks. I had over 30 devices configured over Z2M and, perfected the backup and restoration process of Z2M database (the only solution that worked was to delete the configuration files and reinstall Z2M addon). Today I noticed HA while booting said “starting ZHA” :smiley:
I removed ZHA and Z2M started up like nothing happened, so if your Zigbee2MQTT fails to start without reason, check your integrations pane and delete ZHA :sunny:
