I have a working node for 6 month already, it is running fine, I’m happy with it.
It is running on an HP N40L Microserver with Windows 8.1. I started it with an external 1TB HDD. When it was filled up, I moved it to a dedicated internal 4TB drive. The node has good stats, it is filling up nicely. It is using the default ports, port 28967 forwarded properly from external network to the N40L’s dedicated local IP (192.168.10.50).
I was thinking about to set up an other node next to the N40L as I can not run multiple nodes on the same machine due to Windows. The N40L is used for other tasks as well, so I would like to keep it as a Windows machine…
The second node would be a RPi 3B+ 64bit with a 2TB external HDD. Since it is a dedicated machine, it has it’s own dedicated internal IP (192.168.10.99). I set up port forwarded of port 28968 to this IP in my router.
I requested new auth token which I got on screen, but never received by e-mail (the email address is valid/working, I use it every day and it is the same as for the first node).
I installed Raspbian 32bit using the rPi image creator.
Generated identity with success, authorized the identity and have the confirmation based on the guide.
Installed Docker based on the guide with the convenience script.
Installed the storage node docker container with -p 28968:28967.
Everything seems fine and according to all the guides.
However, when I start the storagenode, it is keep restarting itself in every 60 sec, I see it if I use the docker ps -a command to check the status. Also the dashboard is not available at 192.168.10.99:14002 address.
I installed the watchtower container and it is running fine, I see “UP …”
I was checking if the port 28968 is opened, but the check is saying that it is closed, while with the same kind of port forward the 28967 is opened (used by the other node).
I tried to to do everything once again by deleting containers, docker and reinstalling these, but the result is the same.
Is there anything what I missed…?
