The issue is that my securenode crashed so I had to re-build from scratch. My machine is local, not in the cloud. Unlike moving a virtual server from one VPS to another, my IP address and FQDN are the same, so my check is failing. It appears that the check is looking for something other than just the nodeid, so I’m left to assume that it is the t-address, which in my case is different because I was not able to backup my wallet. When I try to run node app.js, I get the following errors:
2018-01-14 18:36:53 GMT – Not authenticated yet. Node not in servers list or node is still initializing.
2018-01-14 18:36:53 GMT – Incorrect nodeid 1798 sent with config update. Please check config
2018-01-14 18:36:53 GMT – Too many configuration values changed at once. Reconnect not allowed. Only change one at a time.
So at this point, there is not much that I can do except to wait for my server to be removed as a securenode for inactivity. It has been over a week and I am still waiting. I was hoping that an admin on the zencash side could manually update the database to either remove my securenode or to update it with my new t-address or whatever else is needed for my new securenode to re-connect.
