Testnet 2 is now live, we hardfork the 30th at 20 UTC, come join us

in #hardfork8 months ago (edited)

This post will make a lot more context with this other post:
https://peakd.com/hive/@howo/how-to-participate-in-the-tesntets-this-week-full-guide

We'll hf at 1598817600 (30th of august at 20 UTC)

please run hf24 nodes with the branch restore_fix (we found a minor bug in the release candidate thanks to the previous iteration of the testnet)

You need to set the env var HIVE_HF24_TIME to 1598817600

like so:

export HIVE_HF24_TIME=1598817600 && ./programs/hived/hived

seeds:
(note that I bumped the port by one to avoid any unwanted collisions)

95.216.25.162:2003
95.216.25.162:2004

build instructions are in the post above, follow the hf24 guide, except change those things:

git checkout restore_fix instead of git checkout master

change the config to use the new seed nodes (remove the other ones):

p2p-seed-node = 95.216.25.162:2003 
p2p-seed-node = 95.216.25.162:2004

And run it with the new time (as I mentioned in my previous post pm2 is not mandatory:

pm2 start "export HIVE_HF24_TIME=1598817600 && ./programs/hived/hived -d testnethf24" --name hf24

The rest is identical.

Ps: if you already participated in the previous hard fork, it's easier to just delete your hive folder, clone it again and start fresh. (it's a bit longer because you have to recompile everything but if you're not too sure about what you're doing it's the easiest way)

Sort:  

Thanks for the info, I'm currently configuring my node to participate in tests.

One note: it should be git checkout restore_fix not git checkout restore-fix


Edit: I'm producing blocks ;)

p2p-seed-node = 165.22.87.22:2001

Thanks ! I got my copy pastes mixed up.

I'm in and producing!

Locked and loaded! - @deathwinghf24test ready to serve. - To join the witness URL bandwagon, here is mine:

Updated witness-url-video by dope demand to better Eclipse related one:

@mintrawa you may be interested in participating in the second one :)

Yep, thanks @howo 👍 Server up & running on Testnet 2 now 😉

in bonus, a short video of the block creation stream on the HIVE Testnet 2 blockchain (made with angular 10 & nodejs for the fun) 😂

Your contributions to the hive ecosystem are huge. Special thanks to @howo

I try to do what I can. Thanks :)

Sounds like everything is on time and ready to go!

Oke are you ..

Wow exelente noticia, muchas gracias de todas maneras estoy configurando para participar, saludos.
