I am specifically stuck at the part where it creates the backup.
I entered the following command;
bellows -d /dev/ttyUSB0 backup > /config/zigbee-backup.json
Then I get an error called; asyncio.exceptions.CancelledError
Can someone please tell me what I am doing wrong?

Hi!
Many thanks for the video and explanation; I'm trying to migrate from a Sonoff basic to the Sonoff 3.0 Plus, as depicted in the video, and was afraid to lost all my data in the change.

Actually, I got an issue with the export. Note that I'm not using Docker but HA Core on a Synology NAS. ZigPy and Bellows were kind-of hard to install correctly but seem to work. (pip install ... on project https://github.com/zigpy/bellows 0.29.0)
Now, I backup my Sonoff ZBBridge using the bellows command and I got a json file as expected. But it looks inconsistent and fails the check against json validation: jsonschema.exceptions.ValidationError: 'metadata' is a required property
How this can happen? Does Bellows can export in a wrong format (I read the json file and see that there is a lot of missing "required" keys, like "devices", "coordinator_ieee", "channel"...

I then used python3 -m zigpy_znp.tools.network_backup --output /volume1/BackUp/zigbee-backup2.json socket://192.168.1.41:8888 to give it a try but I ended with a TimeoutError...

The solution described here is not working anymore. Please consider following instructions from zigpy/zigpy-cli#2 instead

There was an intentional change that break functionality.

Thanks for the update.
I tried following steps depicted by @shahms but I did not manage to run zigpy.

For instance, if I go pip install zigpy-cli, it issues a ERROR: No matching distribution found for zigpy-cli error.
I downloaded zigpy-cli archive, dezipped, changed the files with the ones from the PR, then requested an install. Python told me I must have PySQLite3 and provided the command (pip install pysqlite3-binary)...
Which fails with ERROR: No matching distribution found for pysqlite3-binary... I tried with pip install pysqlite3 which worked but then zigpy -vv radio ezsp socket://192.168.1.41:8888 backup /volume1/BackUp/zigbee-backup2.json still issues an error about sqlite3 version...

I'm cursed!

I installed Python on Windows platform with all the components. SQLite3 is OK, ZigPy is ok, etc. but running zigpy command returns a missing zigpy-cli module, while this exact one is listed as installed by pip list command.
I'll wait for this to be ironed before to migrate my zigtbee gateway :P

Hi @10165joe i believe I used this video to
update my Sonoff 3.0 dongle
Plus.

https://youtu.be/iCE5Z43EKpk

Then used the zha_toolkit through HACS to update my Zigbee network. Rewrote and renamed some devices (needed to be done anyway) also
Looked at the automations and changed some of those. All in all about 2 hours. Having about 30 devices.

Overall very happy because the Sonoff seems much more stable than the cc2531 that I had.

I just went through this and got stuck with the obsolete branch, switching out the following commands worked for me.

#Install open-coordinator-backup
pip install 'zigpy>=0.47.0' 'zigpy-znp>=0.8.0' 'zigpy-deconz>=0.17.0' git+https://github.com/puddly/zigpy-cli.git@puddly/zigpy-radio-api git+https://github.com/puddly/bellows.git@puddly/zigpy-radio-api

#Start backup process (replace with your device address)
zigpy -vv radio ezsp socket://YOUR_IP_OR_ADDRESS backup /config/zigbee-backup.json

#Restore backup to new adatper (replace with your adapter)
zigpy -vv radio znp /dev/ttyUSB0 restore /config/zigbee-backup.json

this does not work either...

Please use ZHA's migration interface, there's no need to use the command line tools. If you still want to do it over the command line, use zigpy-cli: https://github.com/zigpy/zigpy-cli#network-backup
