I got this message:

I tried looking in the logs. Just prior to the channel closing, seems like there was a temporary network issue and the re-establishment message wasn't received by your node. Waited 5 minutes for a reply before our nodes retried (successfully) to re-connect. But I guess by then it was too late, the channel was already closed. What do you logs say?

Log Summary:

12:33 Received re-establishment message from remote side for channel 12:38:02 Disconnecting, reason: Peer no answer for 5m0s -- disconnecting 12:38:04 Established connection to: 12:39 CNCT: Unprompted commitment broadcast for ChannelPoint

Longer log summary 2019-02-13 12:33:01.877 [INF] HSWC: Received re-establishment message from remote side for channel(624919015402f01fd46d6c0d57a3ac23ed33dc411c6f6b395c117867fba0b4fc:0)

==== How can I figure out whats going on?

  • Rene, you are the expert, I don't understand it at all. I have no idea what I can do. Its a pitty, since only this channel seemed to contribute to collected fees. The link only tells me it can happen, but does not explain me how to defeat it. Commented Feb 19, 2019 at 8:14
