I had a mesh up and running with an argon gateway and two xenon nodes. For reasons I can’t explain (experimenters bug got me), I decided to “reset” everything and start over. Here’s what I did:
- Unclaimed one Xenon. Took that device and put it into setup mode. Went through the phone app to setup the Xenon and had it leave it’s existing mesh, but then exited setup. This did remove the device from my mesh according to the Particle console.
- Did the same process for Xenon #2. Same result. Mesh now shows only the Argon as a mesh node in Particle console.
- Unclaimed the Argon. This removed the mesh network completely from Particle console.
It here where I put the Argon into setup mode and try to start fresh from the phone app that things go awry. I am able to claim the Argon and name it. I’m then prompted for the mesh setup info (mesh name and password). I put these in, and the mesh network gets 1/2 created. The Argon flashes red and reboots. Comes up breathing cyan. When I look at the device info for the argon in Particle console, it shows me that it belongs to the new mesh.
However, the phone app is hung up at the “Registering the mesh network with the Particle Device Cloud” step. Particle console shows no networks under the “Networks” tab. When I try to click through to the mesh network info from the argon device page, I get the “Bummer - Shark/Bear” page.
I made sure that all the names I am using for the new setup are distinct from the previous names just to ensure there isn’t a strange database conflict happening somewhere. Other than that, I’m stumped for next steps.
