Unregister pool


I’m trying to unregister a Stake Pool. I hadn’t logged into the BP server in a while. I’ve tried to run cntools and I’ve answered ‘yes’ to the question:

“The static content from env file does not match with guild-operators repository, do you want to download the updated file?”

Now, I get this error trying to run cntools:

ERROR: CNTools failed to load common env file
Please verify set values in ‘User Variables’ section in env file or log an issue on GitHub

Can anybody help me? Thanks!

Hi, yes

what version runs on BP? Also, the BP is synched? Can u share the glive?

I’ve the same problem running gLive.

My BP is running 1.26.1

I attach my BP status


wow, 1.26.1 is to old, you will need 1.31.0

type free -m to check the RAM (share the output)

for update u can use my guide

Thanks, I’m going to update the node.

You have enough RAM, update the node and let me know the results

Great! I’m going to try.

I upgraded all nodes but I still have the same error in the BP.


Ok, now type

cd /usr/local/bin

ls -l

share the output

also type

cardano-node - -version
which cardano-node

/usr/local/bin is empty

cardano-node 1.31.0 - linux-x86_64 - ghc-8.10
git rev 2cbe363874d0261bc62f52185cf23ed492cf4859

Ok, it looks like the script already updated for 1.32.1 version… please upgrade to 1.32.1 (it will take ~ 20 minutes)



Perfect, now open glive; what is the output?


journalctl -e -f -u cnode

do u see any errors?

also share the output for sudo systemctl status cnode

possible because u don’t have the last files so try

cd ~/tmp
./prereqs.sh -f
if it will ask to update the prereqs script press Y and then run again

./prereqs.sh -f

Wait for the files to be downloded and then

sudo systemctl restart cnode

wait few minutes and check again on glive

cd $CNODE_HOME/scripts

this time should start syncing, wait for the node to sync and then u can retire the pool on cntools

the steps are :

  • start cntools → pool → retire/deregister → if the transaction was succesfull u should see on pool.pm the meesage (RETIRED)

  • wait for the next epoch to receive the 500 ADA back as a reward then:

  • open cntools → funds → withdraw

Then deregister the address to receive back the 2 ADA

  • cntools → wallet → deregister

Now if u will want to move the funds to another wallet :

  • cntools → funds → send

gLiveView is running and the node is syncing!!

Thanks! :slight_smile:

Is it syncing?


How long does it take to sync?

Hmm we are on epoch 311 now, it should be synced in the next 5-8 hours, maybe faster

Thanks, master!! :wink:

You’re welcome, :beers:
