Copy kes.vkey to your cold environment

Should i copy the kes.vkey from :


To cold environment , and put the file on the same place or in the cold-keys folder? i got error msg from both folders after typing command:

cardano-cli node issue-op-cert
–kes-verification-key-file kes.vkey
–cold-signing-key-file $HOME/cold-keys/node.skey
–operational-certificate-issue-counter $HOME/cold-keys/node.counter
–out-file node.cert

error msg:

Command failed: node issue-op-cert Error: kes.vkey: kes.vkey: openFile: does not exist (No such file or directory)

Best regards,

run the commands from same folder where the files are stored or use explicit paths
