Block 34705 Issue

Hi, sorry, i’m a newbie here. Could you please elaborate a bit on how to do it exactly?

check https://gridnet.org/wpp/index.php/2022/12/16/brief-introductory-for-operators/ on how to issue commands and overall basics

tried this command
at the early stage it shows
BH 34704 Sync 100% Vital Good with some Registried UDT Conversations

Now it same as before, loops trying to mining 34705 and rejected for time-difference too high
Here is part of the log

So after enforcing Bootstrap node I’m first getting:

 [TestNet:Settings]: keyChain for: 14chMvLz8gD9EUJPRNFfBqNdX1edkXiLXe was FOUND!
 [TestNet:Blockchain Manager]: Initializing Kademlia-based node discovery..

 [TestNet:Network Manager]: Network View bootstrapping using peer '167.235.35.172:443'.

and then this:


 [Vitals Monitoring]: Skipping Vitals' analysis - node still in a bootstrap sequence..

 [TestNet:Transaction Manager]: Initiating Mem-Pool clean-up
 [KADEMLIA: Failure]: Current bootstrap node failures exceeded acceptable threshold(4). Requesting new bootstrap node from Network Manager now..
 [Kademlia]: Setting current bootstrap node to : IPv4(148.251.75.24) Port:443

basically still stuck on 34704

are you seeing any chain-proofs received from 167.235.35.172?

Folks check if you are seeing any chain-proofs received from 167.235.35.172 after the bootstrap node is enforced.

so… is it correct?

Folks please refrain from submitting logs as images @chill_dj_azm

(we cannot search through these among others).

In your logs search for chain-proof analysis results. Forget the results of block 34705 processing. We already know that nodes are producing blocks on their own.

What we need to close in on is the reason for which you are not receiving valid chain-proofs.

Right now are are implementing tools which would allow you to set only a specific node with which communication is to be maintained on order to lower the search space of possible errors and to make nodes more resilient against data eclipsing attacks.

It is possible that some of the community provided nodes (acting now as bootstrap nodes) the IPs of which are hard-coded into Core have been into data eclipsing practices’ themselves.

So in short look for chain-proof analysis results.

Chai-Proofs are data structures instructing your nodes which blocks to download further.

These need to be delivered by other nodes.


Here’s the assessment which we’ve carried out on YouTube LIVE

  • 34705 is not being accepted due to data integrity issues

  • the resulting Merkle Patricia Root differs from what expect

  • 34704 was the recent hard-fork point

  • yet the block candidate for 34705 is part of the currently proclaimed global chain proof

  • your nodes wouldn’t agree to accept

  • your nodes would truncate heaviest chain proof and keep looking for something valid

  • in worst case scenario they would move on forking an alternative history of events on their own

  • and those blocks you mine would be rejected as well… because too much time has passed since 3704 was created.

we will be assessing this further…

The most interesting aspect of this situation though is that some Operators were successfully synchronizing their nodes from block 0, while others such as yourselves folks, you were unable.

Thus either someone is lying or we haven’t researched the situation sufficiently yet.

We have performed a full-resync on this node and let is sync from Genesis Block.

Let’s see how it goes. We might be having multiple issues at same time as well.

after trying resync we run into another issue some Operators were reporting
