thank you for your scripts. they are great.

i have found some scripts to copy data from docker homeassistant to docker homeassistant.
i also found some scripts to copy data from podman homeassistant to podman homeassistant .

is there also a script to copy data from podman homeassistant to docker homeassistant?

thanks a lot!

There will be in a few minutes.
Look in misc for

bash -c "$(wget -qLO -"

thanks, this was quick.

but i get some error:

Error response from daemon: Cannot restart container homeassistant: error evaluating symlinks from mount source "/var/lib/docker/volumes/hass_config/_data": lstat /var/lib/docker/volumes/hass_config/_data: permission denied


Did it copy data successfully? Never encountered that error

yes, i think so

Use to copy all data from a Podman Home Assistant LXC to a Docker Home Assistant LXC. Proceed(y/n)?y
[INFO] Home Assistant Data from '101' to '102'
Stopping '102'...
Mounting Container Disks...
Copying Data Between Containers...
[INFO] Successfully Transferred Data.

Then you shut down the Podman HA LXC (101) and started the Docker HA LXC (102)?

home assistant is also no more reachable

IP probably changed, hostname -I in the LXC console to find the IP Then IP:8123

IP didnt changed

i think there is something with the permission of the container.

If you created the LXC unprivileged and using a external device, (ZHA ect…) You’ll have permission issues.

you are right: with a privileged LXC everything went well.

thanks a lot!

Thank you it’s looks useful
If I use Proxmox LXC Updater this will update example the proxy manager app itself or just the os?

If I want to add other apps like crowdsec to the proxy container can I?

Only the OS. You’d have to run the NPM update script to update the app.
Yes you can add apps to the NPM container.

For the Proxmox Power Users , the new v3 install script emphasizes on advanced β€œconfigurable” container settings before creation, while us Normal Users can just press [ENTER] for predefined default settings.

What do you think is the best way to have Hass restart your zigbee2mqtt container? I could make something in a pyscript automation, or are there better ways?

Why would you want HA to restart your Z2M?
