It’s been a while that I have a Raspberry Pi 4 and a Raspbee 2, they work great. Recently I’m making creating a home lab so I want to use Conbee.
I don’t have a Conbee to try but is it possible to backup Raspbee and restore it on Conbee? I don’t want to pair all devices from zero.
Thanks in advance
I am guessing the Pi 4 is going to stay the same? Than simply switching out the Raspbee for a Conbee should work. Be sure to make a backup first either through the Phoscon app or by making a copy of the zll.db file.
Thanks for your message but know, I’m gonna install Deconz on a Docker or x86 Linux VM. This wouldn’t work?
Than making a backup and restoring it on the new installation should work. In my case I had to copy the
zll.db file directly which can be found in
I had similar issues migrating from raspbee I to II.
You need to copy these values from the old installation:
Then it should work (after you imported back the backup)
I am running the Phoscon in a docker container on a raspberry pi 3B.
This is my docker-compose.yml file:
I am mounting the docker image /root/.local/share/dresden-elektronik/deCONZ to local /datavol/deconz/config.
My backup and restore to a new device (ConBee/RaspBee/ and/or new server):
- make a copy of /datavol/deconz/config directory → backup
- backup → restore to new server
- startup deconz container on new server
- open a vnc session to deconz on new server (further step not needed if the ConBee or RaspBee are the same)
- change the networks settings (posting above)
- connect to network (is done by saving network setting)
Is it possible to gather the data mentioned in the screenshot above from a headless installation (gui, xserver etc. not available) and to set it to a headless installation? Stay the data in some kind of config files or similar?
Late answer: screenshot is from a vnc session of an docker container (headless)
