Node Offline? Help!

It seems my VPS was rebooted overnight, I had to reconnect an 4TiB storage drive for data but then I got everything started up… but the node is offline. Port is open, date is correct to a second. What have I done wrong?

Dashboard says:

… and thats all. I’ll try restarting again but I’m stumped for now. You said I can use the dev ports and get status? Port 7778 is open.

Just read the changelog, and saw:

Unvetted nodes might see OFFLINE after a restart for a few minutes because we designed the checkin method in a way that storage nodes will not send a message on every restart (don’t DDOS the satellite)

Oh it’s vetted, with 2 Terabytes stored. 41 minutes offline now and only this in the log:

2019-10-09T06:18:24.808Z        INFO    version running on version v0.22.1
2019-10-09T06:33:24.805Z        INFO    version running on version v0.22.1

Finally I’m online! Bloody thing. Over 40 minutes!

So being offline for longer time is normal as long as you confirm port is forwarded.
