What steps did I skip or miss? Stake-Snapshop returns


What did I skip? I’m using CoinCashew, the docs from Cardano and de Lara’s guide. I can query the funds and I see my address on teh Cardano website, but not pooltool.io. Below is where I am stuck with the result …

[cardano-node]$ cardano-cli query stake-snapshot --stake-pool-id $(cat stakepoolid.txt) --mainnet
“poolStakeGo”: 0,
“activeStakeGo”: 22970909569111347,
“poolStakeMark”: 0,
“activeStakeMark”: 23075664958746578,
“poolStakeSet”: 0,
“activeStakeSet”: 23020000415780615


I see on Cardanoscan my


What is id of your pool?

The website is live (Windows shared hosting instead of LINUX) and poolMetaData seems to be formatted correct. I used two DNS records to point to relay1.mywebsite.com and relay2.mywebsite.com.

cardano-cli query utxo
–address $(cat payment.addr)

Returns 10K ADA …

It seems that I have 2 issues:

  1. My ticker is not showing up (metadata not being picked up?)
  2. I need to move 10K from one place to another.

Any suggestions are appreciated.

Thank you


Ok - so debug that your metadata is ok with the commands described here:

Hi Folks,

If you are reading this AND use Windows web server hosting for your website, instead of LINUX, you have to modify your config.ini on the server with the following to allow your poolMetaData.json file to be read/exposed:

      <mimeMap fileExtension=".json" mimeType="application/json" />

I’m 1mm further to going live …

Thank you,


So with that modification could you download the metadata?

I appreciate your help and time. So far, all issues are my understanding and mistakes …

  1. I use Windows web hosting and I had to modify config.ini on the server to expose the poolMetaData.json. I fixed this …

  2. poolMetaData.json in the root of my server does not match the one I used to create the hash :frowning: I literally just noticed this and I’m at step 8.2 in docs.cardano.org and ready to create the hash when I click send on this note …

Thank you,

Hi Carlos,

Do you have a moment to view my stake pool? I think I just need to wait now.

If you have time, this is much appreciated.

Best Regards,



I am afraid the registration is not ok.
Have you checked your metadata? whether is ok, or not?
here is another tool https://pool.vet to check the status of your pool

I see that my hash is wrong AND I have http:// instead of https://when creating the stake pool registration certificate.

It is also trying to deduct another 500 ADA to create the pool again - I ust want to update the pool. I don’t know how to stop that.

I can barely work an hour without a major interruption …

Thank you


if 500 ADA is needed that means your cold keys are different from the keys you used for the initial registration…
try to submit a new topic with the exact error you got.

I will take your advice and publish my question publicly later. I’m reading the docs at cardano.org again - and may re-read them a few more times before I get started again.

Thank you
