My Latest Milestone and Latest Solid Subtangle Milestone are the same, but they do never change and they are behind the numbers in #botbox. What does that mean? My node is not fully synced, right? What can I do against it, if my assumption is right?

Yep, you are out of sync

You could ask in the #nodesharing channel for a few new neighbours. Perhaps you chose some dead ones. You can detect dead neighbours if they are also behind

Additionally, try to restart your node. There are some weird syncing issues with the current iri version, this sometimes seems to fix it

  • thanks. I have restarted it 4 times today, but it is everytime the same behaviour. I have used a new DB snapshot to times, but it does not change anything. So you think I have bad neighbors? Dec 26, 2017 at 23:43
  • Have you already tried switching neighbours? I'm not an expert when it comes to full nodes, but these are the most common reasons for beeing out of sync Dec 26, 2017 at 23:44
  • No I did not. I have my node since yesterday .... but this behaviour is everytime the same ... ok, I will try to add/change neighbors, thanks again Dec 26, 2017 at 23:46
