Is it OK to switch off V2 node and delete left data? Seemes like doesn’t accept connections anymore.

{“level”:“error”,“message”:“Unable to connect to bridge:, reason: connect ETIMEDOUT”,“timestamp”:“2020-01-24T08:58:37.322Z”}

I even modded the node software so it worked better (using files instead of the weird database to store data).

Hi @PocketSam I’ll find out for you. thanks.

here is your answer:

v2 is actually already mostly shut down
we’re having a ceremonial final shut down next week
but it’s already safe for v2 operators to delete their data.


Thanks for the definite answer!

is there anything we should notice?

do we get a suprise on screen when the network is officially shut down? :stuck_out_tongue:

My nodes were disconnected from bridge about a week ago and were not able to reconnect back. So it actually already down.
I stopped nodes and deleted remaining data (~ 15 GB) 2 days ago.

Farewell Storj V2 !


How to know that I`m on V2 or V3?

Do you see Storage Node Dashboard ( Node Version: v0.31.12 ) on your dashboard ?

Yes. I do. But I had to manually turn on the updater to get that version.

Then its V3 and are you using docker or GUI ?

GUI. As a service on Windows 10.

There are other SNOs too that face issue with updater. If you do face any issue open up a thread.

Ok, but are you sure that I`m on V3 version, and now my node moved from Beta to Pre-Release? I joined the network at 2019-12-12.

100% sure I am. V2 didn’t have update for over 2 years.

Ok, thank you. I just watched the “Storj Labs Town Hall - January 31” replay and got confused by the fact that pre-production was started at 28th of January. And because there it is stated that Pioneer 2 beta 2 was started at 19th of November.

preproduction is not beta any more, it is release candidate.
