After updating my node manually and re-running I’m getting stats indicating that my node is down but I’m not sure why, any thoughts?

Updated to latest version and relaunched according to the guide on storj software updates.

Following the guide here: Node stopped responding overnight. Still shows OFFLINE after restart helped! My router grabbed a new ip and the computer that I have no-ip installed on was not with me. I’ll need to investigate no-ip for my linux server. The timing of the two events was curiously close.

UPDATE 2: (since I’ve personally benefited from mining these forums)
I’m going to assuming having no-ip on a laptop was a bad idea and the new ip allocation was really no-ip grabbing the ip location of the laptop that my wife took to work (personal laptop that she uses to do homework in down time) Anywho, this caused the node to go offline. I went ahead and added this script as a 10min cron job to the server (computer) running storj

I’ve now got automated docker image updates and automated ip lookups on the host device.

if you move the computer that has no-ip on it then where ever it is online from the no-ip would redirect to… when using stuff like no-ip you should have the software running so it can adjust the addresses live, else you are asking for trouble…

it is possible that your router was waiting for an excuse to switch ip, and you shutting down the nodes simply gave it time to run it’s firmware update, reboot, or whatever it did that happened to change the ip address…

can’t say for sure that is what happened… but could be something like that… if we are excluding random chance… or that you didn’t notice the node was offline before you updated is also an option ofc…

Good call. I imagine that my wife logged into the laptop at her work and the ip changed. The no-ip is on my user of the laptop but it’s certainly possible that the service ran in the background as I didn’t fully log out. I went ahead and started using as a 10 min cron job on the host computer (ubuntu server os). :crossed_fingers: hopefully this will be a more stable node!


something i wrote a while back, has a few tips and tricks, tho it is rather long and a bit of a mess…

You can try to setup your router to update the DDNS address without DUC on your laptop.
