Setting Up a New Node



  • Run this on another machine

    • You may set node_name what you want

    • You should input chain_id information described in launch repository

# run execution engine grpc server
./CasperLabs/execution-engine/target/release/casperlabs-engine-grpc-server $HOME/.casperlabs/.casper-node.sock
# init node
nodef init <node_name> --chain-id <chain_id>
# Comma separated list of seed nodes to connect to
seeds = "" -> "<genesis node's ID>@<genesis node's IP>:26656"
  • Replace ~/.nodef/config/genesis.json of prerequisites to config folder (Default: $HOME/.nodef/config)

  • copy ~/.nodef/config/manifest.toml of prerequisites to config folder

cp %LAUNCH_GIT_FOLDER/manifest.toml ~/.nodef/config
nodef start
  • If it doesn't start properly, you may execute reset and restart

nodef unsafe-reset-all
nodef start
