Restore a validator
A validator can be completely restored on a new JMES node with the following set of keys:
- The Consensus key, stored in
- The mnemonic to the validator wallet
Before proceeding, ensure that the existing validator is not active. Double voting has severe slashing consequences.
To restore a validator:
- Setup a full JMES node synced up to the latest block.
- Replace the
~/.jmes/config/priv_validator.jsonfile of the new node with the associated file from the old node, then restart your node.
