[solved] another pilight ssdp missed connection on RPI
#1
Sometimes, when raspberry pi (jessy) reboot, pilight restart without ssdp conenction. As I use piSchedule, after a reboot sometimes I miss my schedule because of this ssdp. I had to manually restart pilight in order to get ssdp right

I was investigating and seems that is because of dhcp (pilight start before IP is assigned), and the solutions here is disable dhcp and configure static IP. For other reasons this is not able for my configuration.

I have read some about init, systemd, rc stuff and seems that I have found a solution that seems to work.

This is what I have made:


Code:
sudo mkdir /etc/systemd/system/pilight.service.d
sudo nano /etc/systemd/system/pilight.service.d/pilight.conf

and put into this config file this text:


Code:
[Unit]
Require = network-online.target
After = network-online.target

I want to share this if it can help other people.

This would be good to have in pilight by default, can you make a pull request on the pilight repository on GitHub?

I have similar issues (using pilight V 7.0 also running on Raspbian Jessie) but if I make the provided fix I get

Code:
systemd[1]: Started LSB: Starts pilight-daemon.
systemd[1]: [/etc/systemd/system/pilight.service.d/pilight.conf:2] Unknown lvalue 'Require' in section 'Unit'

I then changed "Require" to "Requires" and then this error message is gone (maybe a typo in your code?) but then I get for sudo service pilight status
Code:
Warning: Unit file changed on disk, 'systemctl daemon-reload' recommended.
I get get rid of this warning if I run the recommended command but after an reboot of the Pi the warning is back again.
Do you also have this warning? Is there something I should do about it?
piSchedule still did not work from automatic start (I'm not sure if this is because of the warning or other issues).

I fixed the issue in my case by not using
/etc/systemd/system/pilight.service.d/pilight.conf
but instead activating "Wait for network at boot" in raspi-config and adding $named $network in /etc/init.d/pilight (and /etc/init.d/piSchedule )

Code:
# Required-Start:    $named $network $remote_fs $syslog
# Required-Stop:     $named $network $remote_fs $syslog
I'm not sure if this is a real fix or just causes the pilight service to state later which then works (I read that others used a "sleep 10")
