[New masternodes MANDATORY UPDATE] Script Update instructions for masternodes owners and managers.
(Masternode owners)Please double check if the autoupdate script is installed correctly to avoid any missing payments.
Official resources from the Telegram group:
Well, the team did a great job from yesterday and today, thanks in particular to Badre for the task that he completed in a few hours, after a stuck of some masternodes had occurred in the network (a minimal percentage of nodes had stucked yesterday but for our team every single node is important). So excellent and timely intervention!
I would like to highlight two important and intelligent features introduced and in particular the first feature (add Auto-update for update/install scripts) is very interesting and very intelligent! We could define the "autoupdate of autoupdates" (or also "the mother of all autoupdates"... ) and also the choice of the random time for the autoupdate (UpdateNode script) of each masternode is also very important to reduce the load on the VPS providers data centers.
Here is the list of innovations introduced as reported in the official Github:
Auto-update for update/install scripts Added.
Update time becomes random for each vps.
Debug log cleared every 2 days.
Log file to UpdateNode shell added.
This shell script can now be used either for a single update or Multi-vps update.
To install or update the autoupdate script.
On VPS (login as root via SSH with a Linux terminal or with Putty or Bitvise or similar SSH client, as usual).
After login as root:
curl -O https://raw.githubusercontent.com/BlockchainTechLLC/masternode/master/Update.sh > Update.sh
Select Option 2 (2. Update only Auto-update script) and then select "Update Single Masternode" or other choice according to your needs (in most cases the normal choice is "single"). Advanced users can take advantage of other options if they deem it necessary. The "multi" option only serves to "send" and install the autoupdate script from one own VPS to other own VPS.
At this point you have finished! Having performed the above procedure your masternode if it were needed will update completely and automatically at random time without any intervention on your part! Every day at random hour the script will check if there are any new 3DCoin updates and in case it will download and update the masternode without any intervention of the masternode owner. And with the new feature every day at midnight the script will check if there are any new 3DCoin scripts updates and in case it will download and update the autoupdate scripts without any intervention of the masternode owner!!! Great!!!
This new script setup is mandatory and it is also very important that you perform the above procedure in all your masternodes in order to make sure you have the latest version of the "autoupdate" script on board. Especially if you are not an experienced user it can be difficult to check what and in which version you have already installed in your VPS.
Furthermore, as already mentioned, this script will allow the autoupdate script to be "autoupdated" automatically without further user intervention, every time the team introduces changes to the autoupdate script in the official Github!
Moreover this script with the periodic cleaning of the logs that it performs, the control of the daemon (check the blockcount) and the introduction of some IPs of "trusted" nodes in the configuration file will greatly contribute to mitigate or eliminate any problems of "stuck" of the masternodes.
Great job team guys as always !!!
I point out that the install script (for new masternode installations!) was updated two days ago with all the big news and features introduced in recent weeks with update script!!!
So for those who install now a new masternode is not necessary to apply the additional update scripts mentioned in the messages above because the full installation script includes already all updates and all new features!
So I repeat for those who must install a new masternode from now it is sufficient to use the usual installation commands indicated in the official guide, it is not necessary to use the additional updates scripts after a new masternode installation!
Here is the official masternode guide (you can find it also linked on the official website 3dcoin.io in the "Resources" menu of the site)
For more technical users who want to check all the new features introduced in the installation script here is the direct link to the commit on Github released two days ago by the team ( be careful! it's not a command it's just a link that only serves to see the differences introduced in the new install script in a comparative way with old script).
