Starting relay node with sudo systemctl reload-or-restart cardano-testnode

Hello. I am using the documentation found here: Cardano Relay Configuration (Startup scripts, Systemd) | Cardano Developer Portal

I am at the point where my next step is to start the node using: “sudo systemctl reload-or-restart cardano-testnode” | and then test the connection with “ journalctl --unit=cardano-node --follow”.

However when I run the journal command nothing happens. Am I synching? Help please.


First check if the node started with sudo systemctl status cardano-node


Hi @Dominique_Ware

sudo systemctl start cardano-node
sudo systemctl status cardano-node

in another terminal tab:

journalctl --unit=cardano-node --follow
