Update STORJ windows install

Hello,
I have now gotten two emails about updating my storage node but all I can find is for the docker version.
How do I update my node for the Windows version?
Thanks.

Welcome to the forum @Harryw007!

Windows GUI version updates automatically between 12 to 72 hours. Can you check which version you are running ? It should be 0.34.6

Hi,
It says I am running version 0.33.4

Can you check if storagenode-updater service is running?

How do I check that?

Execute this command and show the result.

Get-Service storagenode*

Yes, I see the updater service is running

Check log for updater & show the result here.

cat -tail 20 “$env:ProgramFiles\Storj\Storage Node\storagenode-updater.log”

Here is the output (I had to remove a lot of the links due to the 2 link limit):

Please, execute in the elevated Powershell

Restart-Service storagenode-updater

Then check logs of the updater, is it able to update itself?
If not, then try to remove the file C:\Program Files\Storj\Storage Node\storagenode-updater.v0.34.6.exe and restart the storagenode-updater again

Ok thanks, deleting the updater.v0.34.6.exe file and then restarting the service fixed it.

Hi,

I also have the same problem, my node doesnt update itself and still running on v0.33.4
In the services, I saw that the updater is running, but when I check with that get-services in PS, it only shows the storagenode running. when I try to restart-service storagenode-updater it says "Node Updater cannot be stopped due to the following error: the service cant be opened…
any ideas?

Welcome to the forum @Snake!

If you are trying to locate both storagenode and updater services then the correct command is :

Get-Service storagenode*

You are searching for storagenode and it showed you storagenode so nothing wrong with the command :slight_smile:

Thanks, true, now I see its running, but still doesnt update :smiley:

@Snake can you share your updater’s logs, please? so we can take a look

Hi,
the last error was:
2020-03-24T21:34:20.699+0100 ERROR Error updating storagenode-updater: Unable to restart service:
C:\WINDOWS\system32>net stop storagenode-updater && net start storagenode-updater

A kiszolg l˘t (Storj V3 Storage Node Updater) nem lehetett le llˇtani. <-- means cannot be stopped

A szolg ltat s elindul vagy le ll. Pr˘b lja k‚s‹bb Łjra. <-- means the service is started or stopped.Try again later
It seems its updated now…I have no idea why:

2020-03-24T23:30:11.694+0100 INFO Downloading versions from https://version.storj.io
2020-03-24T23:30:11.830+0100 INFO storagenode-updater version is up to date

but now my dashboard completly crashed, see the picture…also if I check the logs, there is completed up and downloads in it even if the dashboard says I’m offline :slight_smile:

and as I can only post one picture in the reply, here is the storagenode.log so it says its offline, but still has up and downloads

Please, use a Ctrl-F5

Thanks! it solved :slight_smile:
