Cardano BP & Relay questions

Hey all,

I have started my journey with creating stake pools in AWS.

I have now confirmed that both Relays can see each other by running the script manually and checking the logs.

Although My BP says Relay Mainnet, I assume this is the case until i proceed further on and have created keys.

Although the BP is not syncing and stuck on starting where as the Relay node is syncing.

Please see attached photos.

Any ideas will be greatly apprciated



Also wait till the relay is fully synced. Then you can start the BP node…

Thanks Laplasz,

Appreciate the help

Although, if i do not start the BP node and sync it, I cannot create the keys as required ?

As from my understanding it much be synced?

keys can be generated without the need of starting a node… and certificates can be registered only via a fully synced node… which can be a relay node

This is the step i am up to.

now i understand, I can do this from my relay node.

Just to confirm, I need to wait for my relay node to sync before I can continue or launch my BP Node,

as with the following X command

I required all keys and certs

cardano-node run
–topology mainnet-topology.json
–database-path /db
–socket-path /db/node.socket
–config mainnet-config.json
–shelley-kes-key kes.skey
–shelley-vrf-key vrf.skey
–shelley-operational-certificate node.cert

yes, that is correct.

consider mark one of the answer as solution if you can confirm that indeed you got the answer.
