Strange zwave device failure
« on: April 23, 2010, 01:47:31 am »
My zwave lights stopped responding, so I check in the device logs and see this:
Code: [Select]
dcerouter_1009446:~# tail -f /var/log/pluto/49_ZWave.log

1 04/22/10 14:14:41 49 (spawning-device) Found /usr/pluto/bin/ZWave

Return code: 255
3 04/22/10 14:14:48 49 (spawning-device) Device died... count=50/50 dev=49
Thu Apr 22 14:14:48 BST 2010 died
3 04/22/10 14:14:59 49 (spawning-device) Aborting restart of device 49...

Seems a bit odd. Any ideas how to debug?

Regards,

Chris

Seems the device can't connect to DCERouter, and exits. And finally it has been restarted 50 times (see count=50/50 in log) and that is the maximum amount of retries.

Yeah. Seems a bit odd, as the router was running. Only thing that solved it was a complete system reboot. I'm not having much luck with 810, and that's with a stripped down system with no MDs and no media playback (so just using it as a lighting controller and universal remote)

I'm assuming you are using a USB zwave interface, like the USB-UIRT you have been having trouble with.  Have you investigated the possibility that your USB may be failing on the Motherboard?  It seems plausible since you are having failures of multiple USB devices.

I've heard cases where the two NICs are swapped after a reboot because hal detects them randomly/differently. If that happens, you might experience problems with the firewall and IP addresses, but on the other hand, I don't think you'd get dcerouter running either.

Thats what I can think of atm anyway.

The USB-UIRT problem seems different. In that case (and with my GSD devices) LMCE has never even tried to start the devices, as no logs are created in /var/log/pluto.

This zwave issue only happened once... so I'll forget about it I guess.
