Transfer ADA Balance from Stake Pool to an external wallet

Hi @Alexd1985
Thanks for your responses … whenever I submit a transaction the Producer Node breaks with Socket Error and then restarts as a Relay Node, continued the procedure twice waiting for the Relay Node → Producer Node. But recently the scripts gets killed and restarted after every 20 mins of sync the chainDB

I am not sure for the reason for it to be killed, can it be anything other than CPU/Memory?

RAM… type free -m

Swap space did not cross 128MB, so I reduced the swap space to 3G,

 free -h                                   │

Alex, would it be possible to copy the contents from the Producer Node to a different server and startup the setup again?

of course… bkp the pool and wallets files and you can do this operations from other nodes/servers… even from your pc if u install VM with ubuntu


$ ls cardano-prod-node/
balance.out                   node.skey
db                            node.vkey

Just to clarify,

correct, but if u also bkp the DB then u don’t have to wait 2-3 days for the node to sync

But why it’s not working on this server?

The System load is more than 2.0 in the box, was unable to use the cardano-cli to make basic calls.
On submitting a transaction, the system peaked and was a socket error and it restarted again.
Transferring was not successful, sync took a while.

So in the box I put all the commands for submitting a transaction into a shell script and ran, after 20 mins I got a response Transaction successfully submitted. but in the wallet the money is not loaded. Does verification take a while?

Thanks @Alexd1985 ,
The transaction went through - the reason for the above was disk space & load, I upgraded the instance to a new server with more compute & RAM - and after 100% sync the transaction went through. Submitted a dereg certificate, to dissolve the stake pool.
Thanks so much for your support on this thread!

glad u fixed :beers:

Hi @Alexd1985 ,
One final question … the current submission for dereg during current EPOCH (321) is to de-register at Epoch 322. Can I shutdown the node until (Epoch 322 MINUS 2 days), then re-sync again to confirm the de-registration, post then pull out the deposit too?
