I am trying to move several devices from balenaCloud to an openBalena instance that I have running. The devices are deployed and provisioned with balenaCloud currently, balenaOS version 2.43.0+rev1, production OS variant.
openBalena instance is up and running, DNS is setup and I can access it and deploy devices that were provisioned directly with openBalena, however I have some issues regarding moving existing devices provsioned with balenaCloud. I’m aware that there’s a
balena join command in the CLI, but if I understood the documentation correctly, that can only be used on local devices, not those that are remote.
There seems to be a way of doing this by SSHing to the devices, however as far as I know you can’t SSH to production versions of the OS.
Which steps should I take to be able to gracefully migrate devices from balenaCloud to openBalena or am I better off with reprovisioning the devices with openBalena, starting the whole process from the beginning?
