End Node Registration fails (sometimes)

0 votes
Good morning,
I have simulated a PAN in the lab with a coordinator identical to the one in service on the field, for testing and repair purposes.
The lab coordinator is configured exactly in the same way as the field one.
When I take a field end node to the lab it does not register to the lab coordinator as the lab and field 16 bit operating PAN IDs are different.
However, the association indicator AI is 00, signaling that the end node is registered, although actually it is not, as it can not communicate with its (lab) coordinator. The device does not try to de-register and register again to obtain a correct operating PAN ID (16 bits)
Is this a bug of the device or am I doing something wrong?
Thanks to anyone that will give me a help!

No that is NOT a bug. You need to issue a Local network reset on your device you are bring in from the field. That will allow it to Associate to the New network that is in the office. When you bring it back out to the field, you will need to do the same thing.

Your alternative to this is it is configured as a Router is to use the Watch Dog timer (NW) command. https://www.digi.com/resources/documentation/digidocs/90002002/default.htm#Reference/r_cmd_NW.htm?Highlight=NW
