Virtual Box HA on Mac moved to Windows - ZWave stoped working

I’m currently running HA in Virtual Box on Mac. This is working fine and I can control Z-wave devices.

I tried to take a hassos_ova.vdi Virtual Box disk backup on the Mac and moved it to the Virtual box on Windows. The Z-wave USB stick Aeotec 5 is used as a controller which is also moved over to the Windows host.

HA boots up without issues but the Z-wave is no longer working. The Z-Wave JS is used as integration. The /dev/serial/by-id/usb-0658_0200-if00 can be found in the HA HW settings on the windows host. I have only one device included with security.

Does anyone know what can be the issue? Since the Aetoec USB stick saves all the devices locally I thought this would work :slight_smile:

Thanks in advance!

I get the following in the logs below:
21:04:14.132 DRIVER Dropping message with invalid data (Reason: Invalid auth code, won’t accept security encapsulated command. 0x0124000400021e9881fb345c6db7bd2a2577fdb08de9229b10cff674b5b08a1d96d2484e165d
21:08:57.365 CNTRLR [Node 002] Timed out while waiting for a response from the node

Just making sure, the Z-Wave controller is visible in the Supervisor hardware information? Is the node battery or mains powered? Maybe the following thread can help out?

Hi!, thanks for replying. Yes the /dev/serial/by-id/usb-0658_0200-if00 can be found in the HA Supervisor in HW settings on the windows host.

According to the log it almost sounds like it has something to do with the security when using Z-wave devices paired with security enabled.

Everything works perfectly when I move back the Z-Wave USB stick to the Virtual Box on Mac.

What type of node is using security? If it’s battery operated does waking it up like the other post suggested help anything at all? Does it help reconfiguring the add-on with your network key from the Mac to the Windows machine? (I know you used a backup which should include the correct info, just making sure there’s nothing wrong in the backup)
