HomeAssistant not updating ESPHome changed IP

Continuing the discussion from ESPHome - Change IP address OTA:

I have successfully changed the IP address, but HA is still looking for it on the old IP and the Device/Entity shows up as unavailable. I cannot even delete the device.

Any suggestions?

A second identical unit works fine (when the Ip was changed). New IP is

I am not sure if this is an ESPHome bug, an ESPHome Integration bug or an HA bug!

Why that? What’s the error message? Deleting the corresponding esphome integration in ha always worked for me and it doesn’t need access to the esphome node for this.

Typical scenario in your case:

  • Delete old (obsolete) esphome integration for that device in ha :put_litter_in_its_place:
  • Add the esphome integration for that device again :heavy_plus_sign:
  • Win (like 20 seconds later) :tada:
