Problems with running node 1.20.0 on testnet

Hi!

I created node 1.20.0
I’m starting my relay node following
https://cardano-foundation.gitbook.io/stake-pool-course/stake-pool-guide/start_your_nodes/start-your-node

But i see some errors with DNS

[ubuntu-4:cardano.node.ErrorPolicy:Notice:55] 
[ubuntu-4:cardano.node.DnsSubscription:Error:60] 

my start command is:

cardano-node run \
 --topology testnet-topology.json \
 --database-path db \
 --socket-path db/node.socket \
 --host-addr  here is my real ip address
 --port 3001 \
 --config testnet-config.json

And here is a full log

./start_node.sh

Also when i run the command:
cardano-cli shelley query tip --testnet-magic 1097911063

I just get
{
    "genesis": true
}

What can be wrong.

I found the source of my error:
The manual i used. Tells to change “Protocol” to “TPraos” in testnet-config
I returned to “Cardano”
Now works

Be carefull with Manuals guys!

cardano-cli shelley query tip --testnet-magic 1097911063

{
    "blockNo": 181565,
    "headerHash": "573c9c31db209a3c175ebf4762af9aa2451db16ea1994922d8685be85030da87",
    "slotNo": 182607
}

Now my stdout looks like

Welcome @lespool and well spotted on that universal TPraos issue which is like an initiation experience for SPOs. Catching this error in the official documentation, even after 3 months, is still “left as an exercise for the reader” :crazy_face:

Nice catch. Could you please submit a ticket on the repo for the official doc/manual ?
