Update to from stuck

Has been on "applying update" for over 20 minutes. Is there a safe way to break out of this?

If I recall correctly, I have seen posts of people where for some reason it took around 40 minutes... Not something I have ever seen myself.

Do you have a C3 or C4 by any chance?

This is on a C7 - my experimental hub. I finally pulled the power for 30 seconds and repowered. It came up with a new IP address, and says it is now on platform xxx.134 - so apparently the update took. All my devices and rules are present. I'll just watch it for a few days.

Ah! That would make sense. Have you considered reserving an IP address for your hub on your DHCP server?

Note that you can also access your hub via Hubitat.local - though if you have more than one, Iā€™m not sure how it determines which one it connects to in that case...

Always best to try reboot or shut down from the diagnostic tool if you can, before pulling the plug at the wall.



I'm no expert on networks, but I'm learning. I just added an Asus AC3100 last week. Took some time, but I did get everything working. I "thought" I had both of my hubs on reserved IP addresses. I'm pretty sure I have it set up now. I have 5 hubs and I've learned how to find them over the past few months. I can usually locate them with their MAC address if nothing else. find.hubitat.com worked tonight too. Thanks for your reply to my SOS.

I agree. But when it is stuck, how would I access :8081? Could I have just opened another window and tried to get to diagnostics there?

Yes. The tool is, for very good reason, independent of the platform.

Thanks - I'll try to drill that into my memory.
