Moving existing MySensor 1.2 network to MySensor 2.0
I suspect I know the answer but I thought I'd ask anyway. I want to move my system to MySensor 2.0 so I'm thinking about converting the Ethernet Gateway first since it looks like its an easy move on the iBoard.
I'm guessing that at that point none of my sensors will work and I'll have to run like mad to change them over too. Correct?
@clippermiami Yes, you are right
Upgrading all nodes and GW to 2.0 is highly suggested - mixed setups can but are not guaranteed to work (and we cannot provide support for such scenarios).
When I upgraded I startup a new gateway on a different channel and move each node over one by one..
I also migrated from Vera Mysensors Ethernet gw ( iboard with hardware hack) over to Mysensors 2beta MQTT client gateway ( iboard spi method) and Openhab...
This way nothing was "offline" for more than a few mins and all metrics continued to get logged to Openhab database..so no gaps in data.
It also allowed me to do the upgrade over several weeks.
Thanks, I suspected that might be the case. I hadn't thought of the idea of using a second gateway. Obviously I have to update the Vera drivers, week it support two gateways, one old and one new?

Probably not ;-(
