Issue Codes & Frequently Asked Questions

Edge Direct Issue Code reference tables and troubleshooting FAQ

Issue Codes

Edge Direct automatically detects and surface health issues with managed edge infrastructure to aid in detection and troubleshooting of issues. These issues are categorized into two groups: Gateways and Devices. All issues roll up to the Site the hardware is assigned to, so users have full visibility to Site's infrastructure health from the Site Details view.

Issues are given individual issue codes by type for easy reference. All issues also are assigned one of three status levels to indicate the severity:

Error - Issues with this status completely or partially prevent operation of the hardware and require addressing to restore functionality

Warn - Issues with this status prevent or limit optimal operation of the hardware. These issue types can limit performance, reliability, or can cause transient outages.

Inactive - Issues with this status report parts of the hardware that are not currently in operation. These issues have limited to no impact on other parts of the system

📘

Issues will remain present in the UI until Edge Direct verifies the issue is fully resolved. It can take up to 10 minutes before some issues are cleared from the time changes are applied.

Gateway Issue Codes

These issue types relate to Rigado Gateways and Edge Connect containers running on third party hardware. Gateway issue codes range is #2000-2999.

Frequently Asked Questions

Gateways

How do you update a Gateway?

Answer

  • Gateways do not update automatically; all updates must be intentionally configured via Edge Direct using the Managed Refresh configuration.
  • When a Gateway receives an update, it will always update to the latest released version of that Snap(software) available. Gateways cannot update to an older specific version of a snap if there is newer available.
  • Managed Refresh works by telling a Gateway what the minimum software version allowed for each Snap it has installed is. If the current snap version installed in the gateway is less than the minimum version, it will automatically update to the latest available snap version.

What does the LED on the Gateway indicate?

Answer

A multi-color (red/yellow/green) LED located near the user button provides a means of visual indication for the user.

What do I do if the Gateway is blinking yellow?

Answer

A fast blinking LED indicates that the Gateway is unable to connect to the internet. Verify that the Gateway is correctly configured with the desired network information and is connected to the right network or in range. If Network configuration is not applied, view the active configured networks in the Gateway Network pane. If No network configuration is applied, connect the Gateway to a DHCP Ethernet network with unrestricted access to the internet so gateway can download new network configuration.
If Gateway is configured with correct network information and still blinking yellow, check the local network firewall rules allows all required network hosts. If Gateway is using Cellular verify correct APN is configured and check SIM card status on cellular carrier portal.


What do I do if a Gateway has a Configuration stuck in Pending or Error status?

Answer

If you have a cellular Gateway make sure to check if your cellular signal is poor (See Wireless Network Connections). Poor wireless service may be preventing a Configuration from applying.

If your cellular service strength is not an issue and you still have Gateways in Pending or Error status, consider un-assigning the Gateway from its Site and re-assigning the Gateway to its appropriate Site once more.

Please reach out to [email protected] if you are still seeing a Gateway Configuration stuck in Pending or Error after the above steps have been taken.


How do I determine what Gateway model I have?

Answer

On the back of every Gateway, there will be a sticker with the serial number (S/N). The beginning of the serial number can assist in decoding what mode Gateway you have in hand.

If you S/N starts with:

How do I copy Site settings from one Site to another?

Answer

In the Edge Direct "Site" menu, there is the option to import Configurations and Site settings from another existing Site. It is recommended that you create a Template Site that holds the latest production released Configurations for your solution, and to copy from that Template Site for all new Sites.

Sites can duplicate Configurations in two modes:

Basic Simply copies all configuration sections.

Advanced Allows you to choose specific configuration types to copy individually.


How do I tell if my Configuration variable is being used or not?

Answer

If a configuration variable is changed, it should result in an update to the associated configuration category whenever it is updated. This should update the last applied time in the Configuration tab of the Gateway/Container.


Devices

Why isn't my Gateway reporting any Devices in Edge Direct?

Answer

Many Devices may need to go through a specific enrollment process to be included in the BLE network. If your gateway is not reporting any devices, first verify that your Device has gone through the proper setup and is ready to connect. It is also important to ensure that your Gateway is online with a green LED and in range of the device in question.

Devices


What if the Gateway is connected to Edge Direct but not reporting Device data to the server?

Answer

In Edge Direct, select the Gateway from the Gateways tab and next click into the Configurations tab to verify that the proper configurations are applied. Update any configurations there as needed. Next, navigate to the Devices tab inside that same Gateway window and make sure your Devices are showing as active and online.

If you have a connection string or cloud credential set as a Configuration Variable for your Gateway, you will also want to verify that value is correct.
