Following this blogpost: https://medium.com/@guccimanepunk/how-to-deploy-a-truffle-contract-to-ropsten-e2fb817870c1

I created an account with geth --testnet account new

I requesed Ether into this account, but when I check

geth attach http://127.0.0.1:8545
personal.unlockAccount(eth.accounts[0])
Unlock account 0x78ca93e2a0621a1b5e198e85fd8e1d2db78d17ba
eth.getBalance(eth.accounts[0])
0

So maybe that's the problem? (The faucet worked fine for me with my Metamask address. I'm suspecting that my geth account isn't syncing)

I start testnest with this:

~/geth --testnet --fast --rpc --rpcapi eth,net,web3,personal

How do I connect to Ropsten test network and deploy my contract with truffle?

truffle migrate --network ropsten

Using network 'ropsten'.

Running migration: 1_initial_migration.js Deploying Migrations... ... undefined Error encountered, bailing. Network state unknown. Review successful transactions manually.

truffle.js:

module.exports = {
  // See <http://truffleframework.com/docs/advanced/configuration>
  networks: {
    development: {
      host: "127.0.0.1",
      port: 8545,
      network_id: "*" // Match any network id
    },
    ropsten: {
      network_id: 3,
      host: "127.0.0.1",
      port: 8545,
      gas: 9900000
    }
  }
};

I was facing this issue when my contract was like this:


contract A {     
  function abc(unit a) public{    
     //doSomeAction     
  }
}    
Calling the contract in another contract like    
contract B {     
  contract A {    
     function abc(unit a) public;     
  }
....    
}    

Then I changed the contract B like: 
contract B{ 
import './A.sol'  
}   

After that, I didn't get this error. So pl check how you are calling the contracts to interact between each other and how much gas is consumed in each call.

try reducing the gas price,

    module.exports = {
      // See <http://truffleframework.com/docs/advanced/configuration>
      networks: {
        development: {
          host: "127.0.0.1",
          port: 8545,
          network_id: "*" // Match any network id
        },
        ropsten: {
          network_id: 3,
          host: "127.0.0.1",
          port: 8545,
          from:  "" //<-- missing 
          gas: 4000000
        }
      }
  • Hello, I tried that, it looks like my geth is locked. How do I specify a password to decrypt? – quantumpotato Jan 29 '18 at 21:34

This step:

personal.unlockAccount(eth.accounts[0])

The lock doesn't stay open for very long, so you will think you did it and the result will tend to mislead you because it locks itself up again.

Try:

personal.unlockAccount(eth.accounts[0], "<password>", 15000)

Meaning unlock, and stay unlocked for 15,000 seconds (plenty of time).

It's worked for others: truffle deploy: Network state unknown when geth is synced

Hope it helps.
