Eth1RequestException: Eth1 call has failed:missing trie node

See original GitHub issue


Trying to bootstrap a new testnet. Teku does not do anything. Maybe because it’s prior to genesis time?

Steps to Reproduce (Bug)

  • connect a teku node to a geth node
  • teku eth1_follow_distance is 1024
  • geth tries_in_memory value is 128

Expected behavior: [What you expect to happen]

It should launch the beacon node and validators.

Actual behavior: [What actually happens]

It doesn’t do anything for more than 40 minutes:

~/.opt/PegaSysEng/teku master 15m 16s
teku \
--config-file="/home/user/.opt/goerli/witti/teku/config.yaml" \


~/.opt/PegaSysEng/teku master 43m 55s
teku \
--config-file="/home/user/.opt/goerli/witti/teku/config.yaml" \

Manually hacking Geth to retain 1024 states fixed that for me.
