Every time Venus OS reboots, updates, or a VE Bus device turn off and on the VRM instance ID changes. This breaks Node-Red node connection for SmartShunt and Multiplus II and causes dashboards to not work as intended. I realize that this is unique to RPi and not Cerbo and related to how USB connections are enumerated.
Has anyone found a workaround to keep VRM instance IDs persistent?
Suggestion for @mvader (Victron Energy) and Victron Energy staff: Please make changes to Victron Nodes to bind instance IDs to serial number of the devices. Is that in the realm of possibility?
