first of all I would like to say that it is really good to have this forum for support, was missing that in the past. And of course also great to have the zigbee2mqtt as an alternative option for setting up a zigbee network with devices from several vendors, really love using it.
My setup has been quite stable for several months, but recently thinks became a little unstable and I’m not really sure what is happening.
I made sure i’m on the latest version of zigbee2mqtt by running the update script and also I flashed my sticks to the latest 20190223 firmware.
When I now try to start the zigbee2mqtt service I get the following errors in my logfile:
3/23/2019, 8:11:11 AM - info: Starting zigbee2mqtt version 1.2.1 (commit #e5ca977)
3/23/2019, 8:11:11 AM - info: Starting zigbee-shepherd
3/23/2019, 8:11:12 AM - info: Error while starting zigbee-shepherd, attempting to fix… (takes 60 seconds)
And this keeps on repeating.
Sometimes I only get 1 of these errors and then afterwards the service starts (apparently the attempted fix did fix it), but then the network is not really functioning well. Few of my devices seem unreachable and don’t report their status.
In total I have around 50 devices connected, half of that are ikea tradfri lights, spread around the house to make a good ‘router backbone’, and the other half of the devices are xiaomi sensors (temp/hum/baro, motion/lux and doorsensors).
Does anyone know how to debug or fix this issue ? Help would be greatly appeciated since currently my setup is non-functional
