Running monero-wallet-cli on macOS gives me this error:

The wallet's refresh-from-block-height setting is higher than the daemon's height: this may mean your wallet will skip over transactions

The wallet CLI then quits.

Poking around I have found out that the wallet block height is 2365949, and monerod lists height as 1273180/2365980.

I have tried to do a rescan_bc on the wallet from a lower height, but this has no effect.

So I think maybe I should change the height on monerod.

Looking at the monerod command line options I can't see a way to change it - or is there some other way to solve this problem?

    May not be a problem. Both are catching up. monerod to blockchain and the wallet to monerod.

    "monerod lists height as 1273180/2365980." <- your daemon is not fully synchronized.

  • @Dave and @jtgrassie - You are right, the problem went away once monerod got synchronized. There's no mention of this in the docs or any of the guides I have found, so it's easy to miss this point. Thank you for your comments. May 22, 2021 at 12:38

...monerod lists height as 1273180/2365980

Your daemon is not fully synchronized.

When fully sync'ed, you won't get the wallet message mentioned.
