rippled server - validator_list - expiration

Recommended Posts

Hi friends, we built small cluster of rippled servers, one as validator (more info https://xrp.4bigdata.eu) and two proxy nodes. Everything was smooth and stable.

But this night validator stopped to validate.  I found that the problem might be in the expired list of validators.

"validator_list": {
                "count": 1,
                "expiration": "2019-Feb-06 00:00:00.000000000",
                "status": "active"
            }

I assumed that the list of validators and expiration date is periodically restored by server. It seems not.

Restart of all servers helped, but it is not a solution. Next expiration date on all of them is now  "expiration": "2019-Feb-13 00:00:00.000000000".

I can't find any information about this. We want to do the utmost for a stable and reliable node.

Thanx and have a nice day and greetings from europe.

The behavior you describe is definitely a bug. The server should automatically refresh the lists that are defined in the configuration.

The bug was recently discovered and a fix has already be made and will be included with the 1.2.0 release of rippled, which should be finalized early next week.

super, we will monitor availability and upgrade as soon as we get it

Thanks! Apologies for the inconvenience. With 20/20 hindsight, a hotfix addressing this issue would also have been appropriate.

But you know what they say: you live, you learn.

the fascinating consequence of this failure of the validator is the loss of domain verification xrp.4bigdata.eu (nHDB8VnzxPpvxm3sE4AEjARVmRm6ogQ7474okZVzcpu9AhVEWjHx)

I do not understand the reason, there was only restart, no change of parameters.

I have to ask for domain verification for validator again?
