I need help or suggestion of what to do…
We had an operator that build for us a staking pool, while he did that.
I’ve learned myself how to do it and build a staking pool myself using the coincashew tutorial, which won the first block today
That operator became non responsive so we decided to take control over the server, We didn’t had control at all including access to it.
Now I want to update the staking pool with some changed information like the relay URL using registration-certificate.
The server contain only these keys
- stake pool cold key (node.cert)
- stake pool hot key (kes.skey)
- stake pool VRF key (vrf.skey)
I thought I can regenerate those keys and re-submit but I guess this is not true, I’m guessing for security reasons the operator took node.skey and node.vkey into a offline device.
Can you please help figure out what I should do? in case we cannot communicate with the operator anymore, and we want control over our staking pool.
In case I was wrong and it’s possible to regenerate the node keys. I did tried to apply the changes with registration-certificate.
I got the following similar error.
command failed: transaction submit Error: Error while submitting tx: ApplyTxError with ValueNotConservedUTxO
When I calculated the numbers it was a 500ADA difference which equal to a deposit “Missing”, the deposit itself was done by the operator, which asked us to send to a different address.
