i am not really happy with the windows installer. For me it finished with an error leaving me uninformed about the current state of the system. (some path not set right)
Luckily as i am working in IT i found the binaries storagenode.exe and storagenode-updater.exe and shortly after the services in windows.
Which leads me to my question, as i want to setup the system myself and NOT use the installer:
What does storagenode-updater.exe do? I see it needs three parameters: --binary-location, --log.output and -config-dir.
How does it know which service to restart? I assume it will stop, replace and restart the storagenode.exe?
Is there anything else going on with the storagenode.exe? I read in some thread that it will also be restarted on a fixed schedule?
I would really love to see this all documented in more detail, did i miss out on something? The storagenode-updater.exe help does not help at all, as it print out all the storagenode.exe related stuff as well.
Don’t get me wrong, a fool proof installer is nice for less technical people that simply want to setup a node and forget about it, but i really would like to know more about those executables.
