LND Channels not connecting after reboot

I think at this point I would prefer to just force close all channels. Can you please instruct me how to do this safely? Thank you.

If you are 100% sure, yes, this could be the last resort.
Use this guide, option 3

Read carefully the steps.
And don’t restore your new umbrel node with the same seed. Just create a new fresh instance. Later you can send the recovered funds to your new node, or just use them in blixt as a companion node. Blixt is a mobile node.

Ok good to know. Maybe I will try a few more things first as a full restore seems risky. I am seeing this repeated error in the LND log. Does this shed any light?

Thanks for your continued assistance.

could be data corruption, I don’t know.
start the recovery of funds in blixt and wipe the data. Start fresh.
