DIY Error - Help needed (CLOSED)

That is what I did and it finally started working. it created a new node ID though.
Thank you for your support


Amazing! So happy to read this @stanikzai

A new node ID is OK for now anyway as the TFT price entry is the same (0.08$).

There’s also a way to back up a node ID. I’ll write it here in case you want to explore this. (It can be good if something happens to your node ID or the SSD containing the node ID).

Is there a way to backup my node ID in order to restore a 3node if the disk with the node ID gets corrupted or breaks down?

Yes, you can do a backup, but as of now this process must be done manually.

One way is to boot a Linux USB image in Try mode, open up the File folder of your disk that contains the node ID. Click on + Other Locations. Then, open the folder that contains the folder zos-cache and open the folder identityd. In this folder, select the file seed.txt and make a copy of it in a safe place (USB key, notebook, e-mail, etc.). If the disk which contains your node ID is damaged, simply reboot the 3node with a new disk and the Zero-OS bootstrap image. Your 3node will connect to the Grid and assign a new node ID. Once this is done, reboot the 3node, but this time with the Linux USB image, go in the same folder as stated before and replace the new seed.txt file with the old file. Reboot your 3node with the Zero-OS bootstrap and you’re done.

Happy Farming!


That is a great idea. Thanks for sharing. I will do that.

Alright good. I added CLOSED to the post title so people will know the questions have been answered.

If you have other questions, we can do another post so it will be easier to search by the Threefold Community.

Thanks @stanikzai for your input and time. The TF Grid grows stronger as we help each other out!
