Is my Masternode working?¶
To check if your Masternode is active and working:
- In your local wallet: Verify that you see the status "ENABLED" in your Masternode tab, and that the Active timer is increasing.
- On your VPS: Run
bulwark-cli masternode status, it should say "Masternode successfully started".
I'm already running one Masternode in my local wallet, how do I set up a second?¶
- Through the GUI available in wallet version 2.1.0 and onward, you can simply fill out the information as you would with any other node and the configurator will take care of formatting for you.
- If you would like to build the masternode.conf manually, you simply need to move to a new line and fill it out following the same formatting as the first masternode.
My Masternode has stopped syncing, what can I do?¶
- The recommended course of action is to run the refresh script we supply on The Official Bulwark Github
bash <( curl https://raw.githubusercontent.com/bulwark-crypto/Bulwark-MN-Install/master/refresh_node.sh )
If your masternode has stopped syncing during setup or update¶
- CTRL+C to get back to the command line
bulwark-cli getinfoto ensure that you have successfully updated to version 2020000
I am getting a "Could not connect to server" error when running commands on my VPS, what do I do?¶
- It has likely crashed for some reason and simply needs to be re-started using
systemctl start bulwarkd
- Follow that up by re-starting your node in your local wallet with
startmasternode alias false yourmnaliaswhere
yourmnaliasis the name of your masternode as defined in your masternode.conf.
- If you would like to see if it crashed due to low system memory, run
dmesg | egrep -i 'killed process'on your VPS.
