I’ve been running a single storage node on an RPi4 with an external USB 3.0 4 TB HD for about 15 months. I believe I read somewhere that having a second node, while not without its downsides, could reduce the chance of my getting disqualified due to hardware failure.
So, I’m thinking of starting a 2nd node on a Windows 10 VM, which has exclusive use of a new 7200 RPM 4 TB non-SMR drive. I’ve read about all the port forwarding requirements for a 2nd node, and am good in that department.
Any watch-outs here?
I read that multiple nodes isn’t supported under the Windows GUI, but if this unique Windows VM is my only Windows node, is that cool?
