I am running Bitcoin Core Deamon version v0.16.0.0 on Ubuntu and need to call the getrawtransaction command for some TX.
To use the getrawtransaction I need to run bitcoin core with txindex=1. But if I am running with txindex=1 it says that I have to run the core with reindex or reindex-chainstate.
So I did run first
bitcoind -txindex=1 and it still says that I have to run with reindex or reindex-chainstate.
So I tried to run
bitcoind -txindex=1 -reindex-chainstate but still says run it with reindex or reindex-chainstate.
Now I am running
bitcoind -txindex=1 -reindex
Is this the correct way? And is it normal that
bitcoin-cli getblockcountis stuck on
