This slot is present in other 3 nodes I'm running and has no errors. Only this node is giving errors for this block and 1000s of other blocks.

The ledger tool shows the slot is present.

solana@us-west1-20:/data/solana-ledger$ solana-ledger-tool -l . slot 221650090

Slot 221650090

[2023-10-06T09:54:49.712119400Z INFO  solana_ledger_tool] ledger tool took 118.5s

But when I query, I get the following error.

solana@us-west1-20:/data/solana-ledger$ curl -X POST -H "Content-Type: application/json" -d '{"jsonrpc": "2.0","id":1,"method":"getBlock","params":[221650090, {"maxSupportedTransactionVersion": 0}]}' localhost:8899
{"jsonrpc":"2.0","error":{"code":-32007,"message":"Slot 221650090 was skipped, or missing due to ledger jump to recent snapshot"},"id":1}

Anyway to fix?

I tried the repair command for the whole range reported missing in queries.

solana-ledger-tool -l /data/solana-ledger/ repair-roots --before 221675707 --until 221646988

Didn't work. Got,

No missing roots found in range

If I can rewind the chain like geth, that would be great.


anway to do that?

  • Worth noting that while slot and block are closely related, they are different things. A slot is a period of time where a block may be produced, but it's not guaranteed. Slots that don't produce blocks are skipped-slots. So when the ledger tools reports that a slot exists, it might not mean that it produced a block, just that the ledger contains activity for that slot.

  • Forgot to mention that slot contains a block. Other nodes confirms this. Will update the question.

Slot 221650090

That output is not actually showing the slot as present; there would be more output if the slot were present. For example, here is the output from a random slot I picked on my ledger:

$ solana-ledger-tool slot 223505826 --ledger ~/ledger/

Slot 223505826
  num_shreds: 659, parent_slot: Some(223505825), next_slots: [223505827], num_entries: 206, is_full: true

Also, you should confirm that the slot itself should be in the ledger by running the bounds subcommand:

$ solana-ledger-tool bounds --ledger ~/ledger/

Ledger has data for 291046 slots 223211323 to 223505858
  with 287976 rooted slots from 223211323 to 223505826
  and 32 slots past the last root
