I just bought an r720 Dell server computer equipped with 5 TBs of SAS drives, two Xeon E5-2680 processors, and 256gbs worth of RAM. I have it connected by ethernet into my router and router is also connected by ethernet into my modem. There are additional 10 HDDs connected by USB going to the server. I have Windows 10 set up on it which is also installed to the SAS drives. I currently have all of the RAM assigned out as a RAM disk.
I got Chia installed on it last weekend and projected by the rate of syncing, that I should have had a full node by the middle of the week. By Wednesday, I noticed it start to slow down and by Saturday, it completely stopped. I’ve been stuck at 2031054/3142956 since yesterday morning, at least that was when I became aware of the problem.
I’ve checked the 8444 port and an online port checker confirmed that it was open. Chia does say that I am connected and my time zones are accurate. At this point it just flashes between the amount synced and displays “NOT SYNCED” repeatedly.
I did see that when I click on Full Node in the top right hand corner my speeds are anywhere from 0.02 to 0.05/0.00 to 90 these. Under Wallet 0.00 to 0.04 / 0.00 to 12.
I am now in the process of copying the DB folder from my original computer I used to farm with to bring up to the present, but my concern is if I copy it over, I’m not convinced that I will remain synced.
Does anyone have any idea of what I need to do in order to get the server computer back in business?
