Retiring Stake Pool. CN Tools

Hello all,

So I am trying to retire my stake pool. I thought I retired my stake pool last week. I am using CN tools, I remember going through the process of retiring the pool through there…When I “List” my pools in CN tools, it shows my pool as “De-Registered” but not “Retired”. I tried to re-register my pool again just to attempt to re-retire, but when I do so I am getting the error: "No pools available than can be selected! Required files: cold.vkey, cold.skey.

Upon looking up my files in my priv/pool/Pool_name/… I do see those files, and I also see a pool.dereg file. Is there something I need to do with the “pool.dereg” file that was not done during the retiring process in CNtools.

U must go in cntools - pool - retire

Cheers,

I did do that orginally last epoch. When I re attempt… it says:
"No pools available than can be selected! Required files: cold.vkey, cold.skey.

Of course… u need the cold keys for doing this operation

Those cold keys are present in the priv/pool dir

What is the ticker

[TYCO]

cold.counter cold.vkey hot.vkey op.cert pool.dereg pool.id-bech32 vrf.skey
cold.skey hot.skey kes.start pool.config pool.id poolmeta.json vrf.vkey

Can u show me the pool folder?

and the env file

/opt/cardano/cnode/priv/pool$ ls
Tyco_Pool
ls
cold.counter cold.vkey hot.vkey op.cert pool.dereg pool.id-bech32 vrf.skey
cold.skey hot.skey kes.start pool.config pool.id poolmeta.json vrf.vkey

Try to uncomment the pool lines in env file (delete # from the begining)

Then try again in cntoosls - pool - retire

no files

Understand… the files are not encrypted right?

no, decrypted everything

/opt/cardano/cnode/priv/pool

ls -l

do u have more folders?

folder

Strange… if u move to pool folder, do u have the files… can u check the size… perhaps are corupted?
