Cannot connect to director on HC-1000 after 2.2 upgrade initiated

Recommended Posts

So... I figured to day was a good today to upgrade from 2.1 to 2.2. Apparently I was wrong...

Initiated upgrade. HC-1000 started upgrade and disconnected Composer like normal. Typically I can reconnect in 10-15 minutes. After an hour of not being able to reconnect I started poking around. Everything appears to be running normally on the HC-1000, but I am still unable to connect to director. Rebooted HC-1000, waited an hour, still can't connect.

I can connect via SSH.

I can connect via System Manager - output of log is below.

Director is enabled.

HC-1000 has outbound sessions established to the following:

UDP ****:123 NTP

UDP ****:123 NTP

UDP ****:123 NTP

UDP ****:123 NTP

TCP ****:33959 HTTPS

The Control4 modules are at 2.2, so it appears the upgrade was installed on the HC-1000. I just don't understand why I can't connect to Director.

Any recommendations would be much appreciated.

Did your hc-1000 have a Mac with a valid 2 lic?

I've heard that even if you have a lic in my.control4.com, if the hc-1000 doesn't, you can have issues.

Ryan can you confirm?

I'm not Ryan :-). But as long as the Mac is a qualifying controller OR there is a software license on the persons my.control4 account and it's registered it will be allowed to update.

To add my 1000 didn't come with the license, and I've upgraded to probably 10+ different versions of 2.x beta and final releases without a hitch.

Hey Rob,

So if I'm reading this correctly, everything seems to be working fine, but your Composer is not able to connect to your director? Is that correct? Have you checked your windows firewall on the box that has composer? Had an issue once (not involving an upgrade) where I fired up a new version of composer, was able to see the director once, but then never again. Ended up having to manually edit the windows firewall to allow that exe access to the network.

Nothing connects to director on the HC-1000. I moved my project over to one of my HC-300s on Sunday and have the system up and running. From there I finished the 2.2 upgrades. Everything else upgraded fine. The HC-1000 is still running as the ZigBee server. It's just director on the HC-1000 that nothing can connect to. It's been reset numerous times.

I have a valid 2.0 license on my.control4.com that has always been used with the HC-1000.
