Testnet Node 1.19.1 syncing issues

Manually using command from Start your core node - Stake pool course

setting --host-addr Relay node is currently running fine

Dis you seted the variable:
export CARDANO_NODE_SOCKET_PATH= your/path/to/node.socket

yes and updated my .bashrc to export CARDANO_NODE_SOCKET_PATH="~/pool/db/node.socket". Although the db folder is being created I am not seeing the node.socket in there.

The node.socket will be created after ur node will start

Had to remove the beginning “/” from --socket-path /db/node.socket. Thank you for the willingness to help.

Looks like this worked for me as well. Thanks.

Hi guys please could you help me if you’ve come across this issue? Many thanks :slight_smile:

Please not I’ve updated tags from 1.24.2 to 1.25.1 now but same DNSSubscription Invalid block error.

how many relays do you have in ur topology file? try to add more, and start ur node with host address ; you can finde more relays fore testnet here:

Hi Alex thanks for your message, by default my topology file only had 1 relay IOHK’s I’ve added few more in there, I’ll update what happens in sometime.

Also - I’ve set the valency for the additional relays with a value of 2.

Good days guys,

I am having an issue as well when syncing gets to epoch 112. Here is the message:

Any idea on what could be goin on?

Thanks in advance for any feedback you may have.

I am facing this same issue and seems that at this point also lose connectedPeers.

I am using the current 1.24.2 cardano-node.

After adding more peers it is moving along but not sure it is syncing.

Try few times the command and check if the slot number increasing

curl localhost:12798/metrics | grep slot

Good to know this one, but did not see slot in output. I have removed db since it was still complaining about invalid block, and I suppose somehow I had it from initial sync when I just had one peer.

Seems I just learned not to all all the nodes in topology. I restarted and seems like cpu is hitting the roof will have to reboot :stuck_out_tongue:

Do u use this script? It’s useful to check the node status

I do have that setup but when I moved from experimenting on rpm based linux to ubuntu it did not seem to register what epoc or other details. I need to double check I enabled the traces. Getting started back up now.

I see there is an issue with a line on the script, but a utility I am missing.

Seem to be getting updates. I cut down the list to 40% of what I initially put in. Will report back shortly.

Since I restarted I am like at slot 16914, so far so good.

I did find that netstat was not installed on script and not all info showing so probably other things missing. Will take a look at the tool page to find out.

Thanks for help and crossing fingers that it gets passed the invalid block issue.

How do I get to do this? also in my /db/ I have socket not node.socket. I do not know if this is an important issue. I followed the Coincashew guide and am trying to run on Testnet. It has been 28 hours and it is on epoch 185. 7 hours ago it was on epoch 184.
