Wondering if my node is working properly

Hello, I have been running a stake pool out of curiosity for a little while now, we do not have much state, only around 30k, but before I go into trying tog et more stake, I am hoping the pool is running correctly, everything seems to be running right, key rotation seems good, just one part that I am not understanding within glive.

my op.cert area shows three question marks making me think there is some sort of issue here. I will attach some screen shots for better explanation.

(Can only post 1 photo) Can try to post others in text form as an edit when I can get back into the node.)

Hopefully I blanked out any potentially sensitive data from these screen shots.

I don’t expect to be mintong blocks left and right with our stake level, I’m more in this for supporting cardano and for the love of p2p communities and technology. Cardano is a new tech for me to play with, we are running 5 relay nodes and a block producer node, all on bare metal, 32 or more gbs of ram on all but one, ssds for most of the systems, data center provided fiber, etc. Block producer has 32gbs, SSD, etc. Hardware shouldn’t be the issue, I don’t think.

I just want to ensure things are setup properly and I am properly supporting a network that I truly love and appreciate without wasting hardware power on malfunction nodes or something like that. Any I put is greatly appreciated and hopefully I have this all right, I should have done testnet first, but I’m doing it backwards and setting up testnet pools now.

Hope everyone is doing well and we keep this network running healthy and happy.

Go decentralization.

What output do you get when you run cardano-cli query kes-period-info ?

I have updated the original post with the output, I couldn’t post the screen shot at the time since this is my first post.

Thank you for any help in advance.

Just an fyi, we have obviously not minted any blocks, so I have been rotating with counter value of zero.
