True, and the secondary controller must ask the primary for the list. In PC Controller, near the end of the Controller Menu, there's a button labeled Update. That is what makes the request. Unfortunately, if the difference is large or the time since last update is large, it doesn't work and I found I had to exclude and then include the secondary again.
suck same issue.. not updating device list... luckily the device i needed to exclude which was a battery device and dead so i could not force a refresh and failure in hubitat was there and i was able to remove it.. but since i have stick plugged in i want to update the device list..
what is the option for removing a dead zwave battery device in hubitat witout leaving a ghost.. there doesnt seem to be a way>
Not a bug it's a "feature". You can't remove a node that isn't marked as failed by the radio. Unfortunately, we have no control over what gets marked as failed and stays in failed table in order for us to show the remove button. Refresh, reboot, and generally patience, would eventually force the radio to mark it failed so you can remove it.
