I just finished installing, configuring, and testing bluetooth on Raspberry Pi 3.
I used the ‘reboot’ command a couple of times and had several difficulties in connecting with devices, but finally succeeded. I tried unsuccessfully with the console software then tried the GUI in a MS Remote Desktop.
When I was done, I opened up my browser and checked Cayenne and Weaved pages, as I frequently do, since I may be using them for long term solar power monitoring. Weaved labeled each service as ‘Unavailable’ and Cayenne indicated the Pi was ‘Offline’.
I opened up MobaxTerm for an SSH terminal session and tiumed out.
I went into a DOS window and did an ‘arp -a’ and there was no entry with the Pi’s MAC address. I looked at the Pi and everything seemed normal. I unplugged and re-plugged the board and everything went back to normal.
The point is, there seems to be a glitch in the software somewhere that disconnects the Pi automatically or on cue from software.
Is anyone aware of this glitch. is anyone aware of a way to do a disconnect.?
Note the console software was bluez and blueman with the bluetoothctl command. I did the power on, agent on, and scan on commands but could not get a connection even though the devices were being detected.
