Block producing node stuck at 99% sync

Hello, I’ve been trying to sync my block producing node. I finally got it to start syncing but it looks like it stopped syncing at 99%. Hasnt moved for a few hours. Is there a reason for this? This is the second time I was able to make it sync but it also stalled the first time because it was syncing in between epochs. Because of this I had to rebuild the node. After rebuilding it started to sync again but froze at 99%

I also have a few other questions about the process. Is there an order as to what nodes to sync first? should I first sync my relay node before starting to sync my block producing node? At the moment I have a relay active but it doesn’t look like its syncing.

Do I sync one or the other first or can I sync them at the same time?

Thanks for the help!

What addresses you have in relay node topology.json? Generated or custom one?
block producing node only connects to the relay node - so only can sync that part of blockchain which already synced by the relays - so if your relay nodes not synced then the block producing node wont be either…

I have the ip address for my block producing node and also the cardano relay iohk address in the topology.json file for my relay. I think Im just gonna rebuild and start syncing my relay node first them retry with my block producer. Initially I wasn’t sure which node to start syncing first so I just started syncing both at the same time.

Im very new to this game and have learned more than I thought I ever could about computer programming within the last 3 week. Thanks for your response! Any advice would be helpful!

Also one more question. Before I start syncing my block producer node should I produce all the keys for it first or can I add them after syncing as a relay node first? Im going off the coincashew example and they aren’t too clear about that. Thanks again!


Then, I think you need to update the relay node topology.json either with script
or generate a list with this site
This activity is needed because peer2peer topology scan not working yet…

If you have other questions not related to this topic I recommend to create a new topic for that - to get help from others as well
