Title: First time running full node never succeed, stuck with ERROR: AcceptBlockHeader
Post by: c_ratana on January 15, 2021, 04:48:32 AM
Hi,
I am trying to run a full node for the first time.  I am repeatedly stuck with ERROR about AcceptBlockHeader thing.  I did -reindex several times as well as delete the whole /blocks and /chainstate folders to redownload.  I am still stuck here.  What am I missing?
Here is the sample error message.
BTW, this is linux bitcoind on Ubuntu.


ERROR: AcceptBlockHeader: block 000000000000002f8118fb9cb380607221dc611f2c1eabcb59074fdab55291a8 is marked invalid

Thanks for your help.

Go to Window>Console and type in this:

Code:
reconsiderblock 000000000000002f8118fb9cb380607221dc611f2c1eabcb59074fdab55291a8

I'm not too sure of the result since such message would usually be shown only after that specific block has been invalidated after a user's interaction. Perhaps this would help in your case.

What version are you running?
