Moving your funds out of the wallet
Instead of transferring the funds from your masternode to the (newly installed) local client, you can sometimes simply move the
wallet.dat file itself:
Expert use only. Make backups of your
wallet.dat files before you attempt this!
- Close the masternode application/process;
wallet.datfrom the masternode to the client;
- Restart the masternode without a wallet. It will create a new one. This wallet will never contain any funds, so you don't need to lock it and you won't need backups of it;
- Start the local client with the new
wallet.dat. It should now contain the masternode collateral funds and the payouts.
- You can the run
masternode outputson the client and configure the masternode.
Changing the masternode private key
If you have used the private key of your collateral account as a masternode key in the past, generate a new key and replace the old one:
- Shut down the masternode and local client (or single wallet, if you still have that);
- Change the masternode key in the
exclusivecoin.confof the masternode;
- Change the masternode key in the 'masternodes.conf' of the client (or use the 'Masternodes' User Interface);
- Restart the masternode processes and local client application.
- Re-register the masternode from the local client ('masternodes', 'Start').
- Use the masternode
debug.logto check that it picked up the registration and is running correctly (see above).
Remove the cronjob
Many masternode owners have created a cron job to keep the masternode running (
You should remove this cronjob since it is a client-side instruction to register the masternode only (and not run it).
You should also remove any wallet passwords from the crontab file!
