Testnet BP/relays won't start after hard fork

I’m running 1.29.0 testnet BP and 2 relays on one machine in my house. I went on vacation during the recent hardfork and when I came back I couldn’t start the nodes up.

Do I need to delete the db’s or take some other actions?

I get this error:

cardano-node: decodeTelescope: invalid telescope length
CallStack (from HasCallStack):
error, called at src/Ouroboros/Consensus/HardFork/Combinator/Serialisation/Common.hs:443:27 in ouroboros-consensus-

I don’t even own a telescope. LOL.

Did u downloaded the files for alonzo?


I have testnet-alonzo-genesis.json. Are there others I need?

The new mainnet configuration file, it should have the hash and path for the alonZo

I need the mainet config file for my testnet pool?
Where should I put that file on my server?

Not the mainnet, sorry download the testnet config file

Oh. Yes i have that one. I cat’d it and confirmed it matches the one at the link you provided earlier

Then try for one node to delete the db and let it sync again

Thank you Alex. As soon as i deleted the db the node was able to start and begin syncing.¯_(ツ)_/¯
