Common mistakes when creating Cold Nodes

#1 ERROR: INVALID IP ADDRESS

#2 ERROR: COULD NOT ALLOCATE VIN

#3 ERROR: COULD NOT ALLOCATE TXIN

#4 ERROR: Failed! Transaction output must be equal to XXXX coins.

#5 TRANSACTION IDs MESS UP ON MULTIPLE COLD NODES SETUP

Let's work on the solutions:

#1 ERROR: INVALID IP ADDRESS

If you get a prompt message saying “Failed to start masternode Error: Invalid IP address”, when you tried to start your masternode from the masternodes list in your desktop/local wallet, then you will have to start it with a different method.

#2 ERROR: COULD NOT ALLOCATE VIN

If you get a prompt message saying “Failed to start masternode Error: Could not allocate vin”, when you tried to start your masternode from the masternodes list in your desktop/local wallet, then either your wallet is locked or something is wrong with the collateral transaction or it is not yet valid. -

#3 ERROR: COULD NOT ALLOCATE TXIN

If you get a prompt message saying “Failed to start masternode Error: Could not allocate txin”, when you tried to start your masternode from the masternodes list in your desktop/local wallet, then the output index of the collateral transaction is incorrect.

ANOTHER TYPE OF ERRORS THAT OFTEN OCCUR ARE RELATED WITH THE COLD NODE SETUP PROCESS ON THE PLATFORM

#4 ERROR: Failed! Transaction output must be equal to XXXX coins.

In this case, most likely, the collateral transaction is not yet confirmed, or the amount does not match exactly the required collateral.
1.- A common error is a trttNodes user to create a collateral transaction and right away to try to setup a Cold node with it on trttNodes platform (without waiting for 6 confirmations). In such cases the user gets an error message saying that the transaction is not found or invalid.
To make the process easier for users, we are getting all the required information for transaction and masternode configuration from the official coin explorers. To be able to validate your transaction, it needs to be presented on the official coin explorer, which means it has to get a few confirmations or take a few minutes to be presented in explorer.

#5 TRANSACTION IDs MESS UP ON MULTIPLE COLD NODES SETUP

When creating multiple collateral transactions, it is imperative to use the COIN CONTROL feature of your local/desktop wallet to avoid the risk of spending amounts of the previously created transactions.
