Hello,
i am trying to install OpenRemote at Windows 2012 64bit and encounter the following error in zwave.log:
INFO 2014-02-19 01:51:16,400 (Z-Wave): Z-Wave communication layer configuration was not found. Defaulting to RXTX...
INFO 2014-02-19 01:51:16,405 (Z-Wave): Z-Wave gateway was not started: Z-Wave communication port was not configured. RXTX gateway not started...

the config in the composer is:
zwave.commLayer: RXTX
zwave.comPort: COM4

com port was taken from system management.
zwave.jar was taken from the website.

Any ideas? Anybody had the same issue?

Thanks in advance

It seems that the Designer Z-Wave settings are not properly synchronized with the Controller. Did you download the settings to the Controller by means of the following page ?

http://<IP of controller>:8080/controller

Chaos ...

How did you go with this? I'm having the exact same problem on a Win 8 64 bit machine.

At Designer page, Under 'Config for Controller' | 'z-wave'

protocol.zwave.classname: org.openremote.controller.protocol.zwave.ZWaveCommandBuilder
zwave.pad.host: localhost
zwave.commLayer: RXTX
zwave.comPort: COM7
zwave.pad.port: 7876

zwave.jar for Free Version installed in \OpenRemote_2_1\webapps\controller\WEB-INF\lib (renamed the existing one to zwave.jar.old)

Been trying to get this working for the past 2 hrs.

I have struggled a lot, and found no solution. I have returned my USB stick to the vendor and bought the standalone Z-Wave device - VeraLite

In case of Win 64 you have to replace the rxtxSerial.dll (see Zwave rxtxSerial dll Can't load IA 32bit) whereas the original error message in this thread

INFO 2014-02-19 01:51:16,400 (Z-Wave): Z-Wave communication layer configuration was not found. Defaulting to RXTX...

INFO 2014-02-19 01:51:16,405 (Z-Wave): Z-Wave gateway was not started: Z-Wave communication port was not configured. RXTX gateway not started...

is no indication of the DLL error.

Rainer,

I am having the same problem as Chaosmage ...

INFO 2014-11-07 05:28:45,240 (Z-Wave): Z-Wave communication layer configuration was not found. Defaulting to RXTX...
INFO 2014-11-07 05:28:45,243 (Z-Wave): Z-Wave gateway was not started: Z-Wave communication port was not configured. RXTX gateway not started...

I've just tried replacing the RXTX dlls with the 64 bit versions from the link you recommended (into OpenRemote_2_1\webapps\controller\WEB-INF\lib\native) but have the same result this morning (see the time stamp in the log in Australia).

Regards
Paul

Rainer,

Fixed ...

I sent back through the inclusion process again this morning and now I am seeing a node in my z-wave log file. I think I had accidentally removed my test switch last night which was causing all of the problems.

Regards
Paul
