Thank you for your message Andrew! Looking forward to see how people use this :slight_smile:

Feel free to post your messages here.

Hi Folks!

I use “The Things Stack network server on a Raspberry Pi with balena” and so far everything works perfectly!
One question: Is it possible to update The Things Stack? The current version is v3.15.0. Version v3.13.1 is used at balena. That would be important to stay up to date.

Regards
Martin

Hey Martin i think it’s possible but i haven’t tested myself.

Try to update this line the-things-stack-balena/Dockerfile.template at 5038bb91cd0d5eaf56cb256211a7911108ee8705 · xoseperez/the-things-stack-balena · GitHub

use

FROM thethingsnetwork/lorawan-stack:3.15.0-armv7

this should work. Could you please test and let us know?

Thanks

Hi Marc.

Thank you for the feedback.
But I am not sure if you understood me correctly. I want to update a running (The Things Stack network server) system. You can’t do that with your description, right?

Regards

@loeffma if you clone the repo on your computer, change that line and deploy using balena CLI balena push to your fleet. Did you try this?

Could you please try and let us know if this works? :slight_smile:

I clone the repo on my computer, change the line and push it to my fleet. This process worked. But after that, the-things-stack doesent´t run any more. See the Screenshot of the Logs…

After that, I push the original repo and than the system ran again without any errors.
Do you have any suggestions for a solution?

I found the solution myself :wink:
From version 3.13.0.x to 3.14.x there was a change in the database.
Therefore you have to migrate the database.
So I uploaded version 3.15.0 again and then executed the command “ttn-lw-stack is-db migrate” in the terminal. And voilà! 3.15.0 is online!

Good to hear that @loeffma do you think you can PR the original repo? :slight_smile:

Thanks!

Hi,

Big thanks to this Tutorial!
For my master thesis I started working with this balena stack.

Main goal is to create a own LoRaWAN infrastructure (GW + TTS Server) which should work offline. This means that it will work at places where no internetconnection is.

I added a nodered service to this stack and to configure everything I worked online. All works fine. Communication with some nodes in the field works fine. Going offline without a reset also works fine. Nodes still communicate with the private Net.

But after reseting the GW and TTS Server (RaspberryPi with RAK833 Hat) the system won’t work anymore. Nodered server is still available but the tts server is not able to run and the nodes are also not able to cummunicate with the server. The tts console is also not able to load (Static IP).

Connecting the RaspberryPi with RAK833 again to the internet and restarting the stack service the system works again.

I thing that has to do because the stack is exchaging some key or something like this.

Do you my have an idea how to solve my problem? So that the whole system is able to run offline also after an reset?

Best regards
Corsin Obrist

Hello @Balena_Obrist thanks for your message and welcome to the community!

Could you please share more information (logs, etc) when you reset the GW and TTS Server? what did you do? Reset services from balenaCloud? unpower the pi? What do you use?

Hi,

Thanks for this fast reply!

I may have to explain it a little more detail:

I connected the Raspberry with a static IP (192.169.1.111) to my laptop via LAN. The laptop has also a static IP in the same net. No connection to internet via LAN.

Then I connect the Laptop and Raspberry to the same WLAN with internet connection. This I do that I can see the device in the balena dashboard.

So over 192.168.1.111:80 i can access the TTN console. After connection is made the nodes are sending bidirectionally, All is fine. Than I turn off the WLAN.
The TTN console is still running (192.168.1.111) and there is still a bidirectional connection to the nodes over LoRaWAN.

Then I restet the Raspberry via a Power off (plug off powersupply then plug in again). The WLAN is still off so only connection to the Raspberry is over the LAN cable IP:192.168.1.111.

Then entering the 192.168.1.111 in the browser pups on the ttn console for a second an then its offline and the url looks like this: http://oauth/authorize?client_id=console&redirect_uri=%2F%2F%2Fconsole%2Foauth%2Fcallback&response_type=code&state=wkVr8nGkFiOUD5Ez

Over the Balena Dashboard I can not access the Device because of no Internet connection but with balena cli its possible and the nodered server is running on 192.168.1.111:8080 and I can access it over the browser.

How can I access the logs with balena shh? Where do I find the log files of the stack service?

@Balena_Obrist did you configured the static ip address on your Pi?

i imagine that you already checked this → Run your private The Things Stack network server on a Raspberry Pi with balena

You can find the documentation here → SSH access - Balena Documentation

Yes i did the whole tutorial and as I said it works fine until you reboot when the device is not connected to the internet.

Here are the enabled services after boot:

Dear Marc,

Did my previous reply with some of the output log helped you, to understand what might goes wrong on my system?

Best regards
Corsin

Hello @Balena_Obrist sorry for my late answer!

tbh i’m not sure where the problem could come from. I have been reading a similar issue reported here and it looks like the solution was open a port. However here i’m not sure.

Next week i will try to reproduce on my device.

Hello @mpous

After several tests, I still think the Stack needs some internet connection at the beginning for some key-exchange or something like this,

Did you found some time to try it at your place?

Best regards
Corsin Obrist

In a couple of weeks i will test this myself @Balena_Obrist

let me know if you can discover anything as well :slight_smile:
