Cardano-node Active: activating (auto-restart)

Hello, I am configuring to create a pool. I am currently setting up node 8.7.3.
After completing the entire setup, when I try to run the node, the following logs keep appearing.
All files exist in the specified path, but… What else should I check? Your assistance would be appreciated.

● cardano-node.service - Cardano node service

Are you following a guide or using CNTools?

What happens when you run “which cardano-node”?

basically u have the error in front of your eyes

no such file or directory… doesn’t tell you enough?

Hello, I followed the guide and performed the steps. Below is the link to the sequence and explanation of what I have done. Is there anything wrong with the process I followed?
my guide

Also, the captured images show the current installation.


As you said, the message appears, but… I’m confused because it exists in the path…
I’ll share the link and captured images of what I’ve done. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

CNTools is something new to me. Could it be a simpler approach?
If you could provide me with a guide or a link to reference CNTools, I’d be willing to start over from scratch.

cd /usr/local/bin

do u see cardano-node folder here?

You were right. I changed the path to root/local/bin… Now the status has changed to active. I’ll proceed forward again. Thanks once again.

Now, another issue has arisen. Although it seemed to be running earlier, it shut down immediately and the log shows the following:

I changed it, but it’s still the same. I heard the json file is for 8.9.0, but I downloaded 8.7.3, so could there be a problem?

downlod the file for ur running version

Well I would recommend installing the 8.9 binary. You’ll only have to upgrade later otherwise. Links at the bottom of this page:

Let’s try again from scratch with 8.9.0. thank you

Is there a separate link to the binary for 8.7.3?

You shouldn’t need to start from scratch again, just put the 8.9 binary in place of the 8.7.3 binary

You can find all the releases on the same github repo.

You were right. I changed the path to root/local/bin…
