After updating from 1.30.1 to 1.32.1 my node is stuck at starting. it has been over 1 hour and 20 minutes and it still says starting. Does anybody know what is wrong? or what i can do ?
can u share the glive output?
I found out that it was because of the old db. I deleted it and it started syncing right away. Now I only have to wait 2 days before it’s synced. Laat time i did a full sync it was in 1 day. Is it normal to take 2 days nowadays?
I have 4 cores 16gb ram 1gb internet connection. Cores running around 65-93% (going up and down). Ram memory is low usage
You shouldn’t have deleted the db folder. At least not the “immutable” sub-folder from the db folder. And you should have upgraded to 1.33.0.
The upgrade to 1.33.0 takes 2 to 4 hours (the first restart).
It is normal to take more, the db folder is much larger now than a few months ago.
I have a backup from a lasr saturday I can put back. But then will it be starting again?
It will start, but it will take a long time (probably less than 1 hour). Keep only the “immutable” subfolder of the “db” folder, delete the rest. But you should upgrade directly to 1.33.0, and it will take 2-4 hours (if you have ssd disks) or longer (if you have a hosting with a lower quality of the services).
I had a similar experience with one of my local relay nodes recently. Check pool.vet to see if it gives you any insight. I ended up reinstalling LTS entirely and programming the node from scratch—this worked perfectly.
Before this I tried deleting the DB file and restarting, but it was going to take days for the full sync so I decided to just start from scratch.
Hope this helps.
next time when/if u will delete the DB, you can copy it back from one of your working nodes
That’s a good idea! Thanks Alex I’ll try that next time something like this happens. Especially if it’s the producer next time…
ok, starting issue can be fixed without deleting the DB, perhaps it was another error…anyway… glad u fixed
I was trying to mint tokens off that relay and I think messed up one of the socket paths in doing so. Now that the relay is back up I have another guide I will use to try to mint the assets.
