Eureka!
Firstly thanks to slychui for sending me a replacement daughterboard. That didn't solve the problem. (Would you like me to send it back?)
After playing around in my mind I had a thought. I have a couple of z-wave modules that are not in use. They are for a project not yet started. They are registered on the z-wave network.
When I scan the z-wave network with the primary controller it simply says that the nodes are not available.
I wired up the nodes and did a learn from Comfort and it worked straight away!
I understand that when Comfort learns it does a scan of the network. My hypothesis is that when Comfort is scanning it hangs if it doesn't find a node.

I am glad you figured it out
My hypothesis is that when Comfort is scanning it hangs if it doesn't find a node.

That is not correct. UCM/Zwave will attempt to contact all nodes, but if any node does not reply, it will give up after a while. When the number of nodes is very large that may take a long time. So all nodes should be on line when doing a learn. There may be difefrent alternative network routes thatn are used to attempt to contact the nodes

Zwave is a complex system especialy for 3rd party secondary controllers. because it depends a lot on how the primary controller mages the network.

Could you send the module by post please

Ther module that we use has been obsoleted so we will not be sellong Zwave for much longer
