SOLARIS Masternode Setup Guide

NODEshare's easy step by step instructions

The process of setting up a remote XLR Masternode may seem daunting but you only need to follow a few steps.

Start with the checklist and work your way through the steps.

Step 0 - Checklist

You will need the following.

  • 1,000.1 XLR coins. You only need 1,000 for your masternode, but do need a bit more to make the transactions.
  • Latest version of the XLR wallet - check the Solaris website for the official version
  • Order Hosting from NODEshare
  • 10 minutes of your time

Onto Step 1. Click on the below to get started.

Step 1 - Enable Coin Control

Goto Settings, Click Options, Click Wallet, Click Enable Coin Control

Step 2 - Create Receive Address

Click Receive, Type your masternodes Alias into LABEL. Alias can be anything, we often go with MN1 or MN2 etc… Then click Request Payment.

Step 3 - Send 1000 XLR to new address

Copy Address and close window.

Then click SEND

  1. Paste the new address in PAY TO:
  2. Type 1000 in Amount:
  3. Click yellow button Send at the bottom left
  4. Click okay to confirm the transaction fee

Must be 1000 XLR - do not alter this number for fees, etc.

If you have a masternode already set up, you MUST use COIN CONTROL so coins are not sent from an existing masternode.

Please note that you have to send the amount in one single transaction.

Step 4 - Email NODEshare your Address

Just reply to XLR Masternode Order Confirmation - [XLR1XXX] from NODEshare

Paste your address and send the reply.

Step 5 - Receive NODEshare email, Close wallet & Place the masternode.conf file

You will need to open the Solaris Folder in APPDATA. To reach this folder - start in File Explorer and follow the following tree:

This PC > OS (C:) > Users > Login Name > Appdata > Roaming > Solaris

Paste the new data from the file received from NODEshare into masternode.conf

If you can not see appdata - see this link on Microsoft for help

Step 6 - Restart wallet & Unlock the collateral

Restart Wallet so the changes from the masternode.conf take effect.

Click send. Click Inputs. In list mode there is lock next to your 1000 collateral amount.

Click on the lock - click on “unlock unspent” within the dropdown

Step 7 - Start Masternode

Click the Masternode Tab

Select the the alias and click "Start Alias"

A message will appear that the Masternode was started successfully.

    If you have errors: 1st Recheck your work.

  • If you get the “could not allocate vin error” - check coin control and make sure that 1000 coins are in the specified address.
  • If you get the error "could not allocate txin" or "could not allocate IP" - start your masternode through the debug console. Run the command:
    startmasternode all 0

    Happy Dividends!
