Hello everyone, I’m new to Storj but this appears to be a great community. I’m looking forward to being part of it.
So I decided to give Storj a shot on Win10 and found the setup to be fairly straightforward but ran into a problem I wasn’t aware of until I attempted to fire up my node. It wouldn’t come online so I started troubleshooting. I discovered that when I created my identity, it did not create all 6 necessary files as documented in the install guide and on this thread My Node is OFFLINE for 2 hours. When I initially ran identity_windows_amd64.exe, it completed in under 5 seconds on an older Celeron so I was a bit shocked but figured I got lucky. So, per the install guide I re-ran “identity_windows_amd64.exe create storagenode” again and again. Each time it completes in under 30 seconds, reports no errors but only generates 4 files. (ca.cert, ca.key, identity.cert, identity.key). I’ve now tried running it on 3 different Win 10 machines with the same result. Hoping someone can shed some light on what the issue could be. Also wondering if I’m screwed now since I have already used my auth token against an invalid identity? Appreciate any input. Thanks!
