More than one Storagenode on windows GUI

Hello Storj Team.

I have knolage how to install more than one node on windows GUI.
It is a litle bit for Advanced Users but simple.
Before i Publish it, want to hear Storj Team opinion about this.
It has some +/- also.

1)If SNO has more than 1 HDD, no need to make raid 0, what is also not recomended, in this case 1 hdd falure will not loose both hdd data.
2) separate threads dealind with separate hdd.

  1. No autoupdate yet.
    For some reson autoupdate service not updating it, may be there servicename is hardcoded.

Yes, the service name of the storagenode is hardcoded to “storagenode” in the auto-updater.

Question was, can i share it, or have more than 1 node on pc also not recomanded?

Feel free to share whatever setup you have. This is an open-source project and we encourage the community to share their knowledge and experience.

I don’t think we (Storj Labs) would recommend this setup. We haven’t tested it and, as you have noticed, we haven’t designed all components (like the autoupdater) to be tolerant to such kind of setup. This does not mean it won’t work successfully.

Mey be it is a time to test such thing, and make some update to updater.
Then people can make node per HDD, this will inproove stability and no need of raid 0

Any change you would like to see implemented, please add your proposal to the ideas portal for consideration and others to upvote, thanks.

As I spoked before there is posible to install more than 1 GUI node on windows.

For this you neede.
1)Copy of you first node folder in program files with name like Storj1, and delete storajenode.txt old log from this map
2)New indentiry in separete location.
3)change config.yaml
console.address: localhost:14003 - this port should be unic
identity.cert-path: C:\Identity1\storagenode/identity.cert - path to your new indentiry
identity.key-path: C:\Identity1\storagenode/identity.key - Indentiry CA sert
kademlia.external-address: : - External port should be unic and NAT made
log.output: winfile:///C:\Program Files\Storj1\Storage Node\storagenode.log - Log path should be corrected
server.address: : - should be unic, to this port you will rote by NAT from external IP
server.private-address: 127.0.0.1:7779 - Should be unic
storage.allocated-disk-space: 3.4 TB
storage.path: G:\

4)Add new service with this row with corected paths.
Open CMD as Administrator
Pase:
sc.exe create StorjV3StorageNode1 binPath= ““C:\Program Files\Storj1\Storage Node\storagenode.exe” run --config-dir “C:\Program Files\Storj1\Storage Node\”” type= own start= auto

Go to services and Start new Storagenode service.
Go to dashboard to check if all working.
Not working Go and check storagenode.txt for error.
