Error Observed: etherbase missing; must be explicitly specified

Created by Daniel Anthony, Modified on Thu, 11 Jan at 8:13 PM by Daniel Anthony

To fix this issue, the signer address that is used to mine must be added inside miner.etherbase section in the config.toml file.

Steps to Prune the node

  1. Check your Bor data size before pruning

    du -sh /usr/bin/bor
  2. Stop Bor

    sudo service bor stop
  3. Start tmux to ensure that even if your SSH connection is reset, the process is running on the remote machine tmux.

  4. Start pruning.

    sudo bor snapshot prune-state --datadir  /usr/bin/bor

    The default –datadir is /usr/bin/bor.

  5. Once the pruning is completed, you will see success logs and details. Then start Bor again.

    sudo service bor start
  6. Check your Bor data size after pruning.

    du -sh  /usr/bin/bor
