Thank you, @DarthCoin. I started with option 1. The node is up and the blockchain started syncing. However, the LND steps didn’t seem to work. Perhaps, I will need a backup from “devs.” Please advise. I had a lot of funds on LND, the only backup I took was at the time of recent upgrade that umbrel offers under settings.
Yeah, the old drive is corrupted. But I have the my-umbrel-channels.backup that I took on 2022/03/09 while upgrading umbrel to the latest release. I used it to complete recommended STEP1 and STEP2. (Please refer to the attached screenshot.)
At the moment, the node is syncing… bitcoin wallet is showing the funds as before, but LND is weird… $0 but it keeps changing the peer channels in LND.
Is OK, those peers are NOT your channel peers, are just random.
Install Thunderhub and/or RTL to see the closing channels.
Also install the Lightning shell app, where you have access to cli commands and check the status of pending close channels
Shall I re-do STEP 1 and STEP2 to copy and restore the channel.backup file?
Is there another channel.backup file that I could get from Umbrel (even though I took a backup a day before?)?
I noticed the new LND id is the same as before the crash but different after “@” (lndnodeid@xxxx). That is, say, before the crash lnd id was: abc1234@xyz, and after the crash, it is abc1234@pqr (abc1234 part is same).
Thank you, @DarthCoin. I have been going through the guide. Here some of the output from Lightning Shell commands. I am unsure of my next steps. Shall I go ahead and repeat STEP 1 and STEP 2 for channel.backup /restore?
Okay, saw your (@DarthCoin) response to a similar question in another post advising not to do it twice, so I won’t.
But I do need help with the next steps… I had millions of sats on lnd. It would be an awful experience to lose them despite me taking backups, restoring with seed words, and trying all I could all in vain.
