Over in the NY area, tropical storm Ida knocked out the power and WiFi last night.
I got everything reset, back up and running but my umbrel still appears offline.
I went to settings to manually reset it but there was no change when it restarted.
I am very new with this so please provide layman’s terms when describing a solution.
How long was your power out? You’re going to be behind on the blockchain, so it will take some time to get re-synced with the network. Not sure but might be that your lightning channels will take some time also.
Power was out for about 6 hours.
So technically my umbrel IS still calibrating and re synchronizing?
I knew it would need to catch up, but I expected it to show real time results such as:
- Channels saying ONLINE instead of Offline
- Bitcoin sync dropping from 100% to 99% to catch up with blockchain again.
- Wallet balance showing Fiat amount in $$$
I fear these 3 indicators reflect an offline node.
(Also, my node is not accessible via Tor. I am only able to connect to it locally)
I tried resetting, shutting down and replugging, clearing history and cache, opening incognito window, restarting comp.
- 3 hours later Everything seems to be up and running again I guess it just needed time.
Very grateful and de-stressed knowing this is finally resolved without having to input commands and open Pandora’s box.
Good to hear. I don’t know for a fact but I think if your local blockchain is out of sync, there are problems with pulling up wallet values, etc.
My node was disconnected safely and i had to change the case. Now i cannot log into umbrel online (it says it cannot connect to external drive). Is this an issue that has happened to anyone?
