Invalid configuration on hassio



  • HASSIO 0.62.1 on RPI with serial gateway attached
    I get "invalid configuration" when running "hassio homeassistant check"

    When running configuration validation in the UI I get "valid configuration"

    What am I missing?

    Error on homeassistant/check: starting version 3.2.4

    I think you need to specify the absolute path to the persistence file. It should be in a directory where home assistant has write permission. Usually the configuration directory is good.



  • The mysensors.json is in the same directory as the configuration.yaml.

    The first ERROR line in the log above says " unable to setup error log. But in my config directory is also a "home-assistant.log".

    Despite the errors in the config check the system seems to works as far as I can see.



  • I am having the same issue with Hass.io. I have tried defining the persistence file location as '/core/config/mysensors1.json', '/config/mysensors1.json', 'congif/mysensors1.json', ... I have tried having it within quotes, double quotes, and without.

    Any thoughts would be appreciated.

  • On the latest HASSIO release now and still not solved Can someone help with this problem?

    The mysensors.json and configuration.yaml are in the same config directory.
    Despite the above problem the system seems to work fine.

    Is this a fake error?



  • I’m experiencing the same error and issues.



  • Make new dir in config dir. Then add by hand mysensors.json.



  • @mredone said in Invalid configuration on hassio:

    Make new dir in config dir. Then add by hand mysensors.json.

    Thank you for the suggestion. That does not resolve the issue. It appears it is only an issue with the config checker. The file exists and is written to just fine so there is no real effect on operation. However, it prevents using the built-in HA restart function since that won't execute fully when the checker throws an error.



  • I'm having the same problem as well, very frustrating not getting it to work!



  • @iteafreely When I make a configuration change, this change is not gone thru after a restart. I have to power off/on the RPi to activate the configuration change.
    So, you think this is also because of this configuration error



  • I am now at 0.69.1 HASS on Rpi and still having configuration check problem.

    This is my configuration:

    mysensors:
      gateways:
        - device: '/dev/ttyUSB0'
          persistence_file: '/config/mysensors.json'
          baud_rate: 115200
      optimistic: false
      persistence: true
      retain: true
      version: '2.0'
    
    

    And this is the configuration check ERROR:

    core-ssh:~# hassio ha check
    ERROR
    starting version 3.2.4
    Testing configuration at /config
    Failed config
      mysensors:
        - Invalid config for [mysensors]: /config directory does not exist or is not writeable for dictionary value @ data['mysensors']['gateways'][0]['persistence_ file']. Got /config/mysensors.json'
    not a valid value for dictionary value @ data['mysensors']['gateways'][0]['device'].
    Got '/dev/ttyUSB0'. (See /config/configuration.yaml, line 85). Please check the docs at https://home-assistant.io/components/mysensors/
    

    A secondary result of this error is the restarting the Rpi does NOT load a new configuration!
    The only way to load a new configuration file is to power off/on the Rpi.

    However all the rest seems to funtion well !?

    Really need help with this.



  • HASSIO 0.70 on RPi with serial gateway attached still having configuration check problem with mysensors when executing

    hassio ha check
    

    This is what I did to try to solve:

    • Deleted the configuration.yaml and the mysensors.json

    • Restarted the RPi and hassio installed the default configuration.yaml

    • Added the following mysensors configuration to the default configuration.yaml

    mysensors:
      gateways:
        - device: '/dev/ttyUSB0'
          persistence_file: 'mysensors.json'
      persistence: true
      retain: true
      version: '2.2'
    
    • Restarted the Rpi and checked that hassio had installed the mysensors.json in the /config directory
      All my sensors were added to the mysensors.json

    • The whole system seems to work OK!

    • However when I run "hassio ha check" on the RPi I get the following error:

    core-ssh:~# hassio ha check
    ERROR
    Testing configuration at /config
    Failed config
      mysensors:

    • There are no errors in the system log! According to the log the system is reading and writing fine to and from the mysensors.json

    • The secondary annoyance from this problem is the fact that I cannot reload the configuration file after a change. The only way to reload the configuration file is by powering off/on the RPi

    • I added an issue on github: https://github.com/home-assistant/hassio/issues/478

    Any help appreciated
