After completing the cumulus tutorial, I'm trying to connect the parachain to Rococo. I have two questions

  1. Do we need to run our own validator nodes for Rococo? (my understanding is that its not needed)
  2. If step 1 is not needed, how do we connect to the Rococo relaychain nodes, I have previously used -- -- chain rococo at the end of the start command to connect the parachain to rococo, but that is no longer working.

The startup command used

./target/release/parachain \
--alice \
--collator \
--force-authoring \
--chain rococo-local-parachain-2000-raw.json \
--base-path /tmp/parachain/alice \
--port 40333 \
--ws-port 9944 \
--rpc-port 9979 --rpc-cors all --discover-local \
--rpc-external --rpc-methods=unsafe \
-- \
--execution wasm \
--chain rococo

You might be using the wrong chain spec of Rococo.

The one running was included in this PR: https://github.com/paritytech/polkadot/pull/5113/commits/e9a0947de83f8ced4402a6d2df54dd78d861369d

  • You were right, using the chainspec you shared solved the issue. Although I have another question, when I started the node I can see this ``` 2022-04-20 13:20:09 [Relaychain] Block import error: Database 2022-04-20 13:20:09 [Relaychain] ? Error importing block 0xef24675155e6e5fe947e: consensus error: Import failed: Import failed: Database 2022-04-20 13:20:09 [Relaychain] DB corrupted: Corruption: Corrupted compressed block contents: Snappy. Repair will be triggered on next restart ``` but fixes itself and starts syncing in ~30sec. Is this normal?
