I’ve created this FR; https://github.com/storj/storj/issues/3973
It basically attempts to prevent a storage node from starting, if the node starts in the wrong location.
The reasons could be many;
- SNO made a mistake;
- forgot a mount and rebooted
… or any other silly thing happened. The point is, the node shouldn’t start and get reachables, and DQ itself fast and silent. Instead - stop the node, and write about a wrong path.
That would remove a large percentage of the reasons why SNO’s DQ nodes - simple mistakes. In a robust storage network theres NO place for such a fragile setup; ‘made a mistake? We’ll boot anyways, and give you a silent death, haha!’ - instead, shut down the node. Simple.
See the FR for more info and suggestions.
