I installed my iri node with nelson about a weeks ago and it is still not synced.

Does anyone have any suggestions why?

Adding more info to setup.

I am running arch linux. I installed iri with yaourt from the aur. I installed nelson from a build, and confirmed that it is working. It has synced quite a bit. Let me know if there is any more info I can provide.

    Please add more information about your setup. Otherwise we're guessing... – Helmar Jan 1 '18 at 21:45

Please try installing iri- and nelson 0.3.12. You might need to re-download database snapshot before. Had some trouble with the "old" database.


To speed up the sync, you can first download a recent Database. You must stop IRI first before attempting to extract the DB. Restart IRI.

Following the instructions from http://iota.partners/ go to Step 6.

Hope this helps


There is a bug in IRI which prevents node from syncing. A patch is being tested. You can try https://github.com/iotaledger/iri/issues/428#issuecomment-354794138
