~~~  Additional info about B12  ~~~

This version has had no issues upgrading 1.5 wallet.dat’s to 2.0, and also includes new graphics.

IMPORTANT: Before installing the new beta, please delete the contents of your beta test Data Dir (C:\Users\{your name}\AppData\Roaming\SolarCoin\).  This includes peers.dat, blk0001.dat, txleveldb, (optionally, database and debug.log), and if you are running with a beta wallet.dat, remove it as well, provided there are no coins in it.  If you are running beta with a “live” wallet.dat from 1.5, please replace it with a backup version from your 1.5 wallet to ensure it upgrades properly.  Your coins will be restored when the wallet is fully synced.

We’re getting really close!

PS: PoST is currently set to kick in after height 800000.  This will give the exchanges time to update their software. After 800000, there will be a delay of up to 6 hours before PoST blocks begin generating.  The software is designed to begin staking as soon as you login to the wallet.  So there's nothing you need to do to stake besides the initial encryption of the wallet.  Just login and begin earning interest.  If you choose not to stake, there is an option to turn it off: Settings->Disable Staking.  Staking is the equivalent of mining in PoW. If there were no miners, the network would grind to a halt, so staking is critical for the health of the network.

peers.dat is present but opens to rubbish characters, no structure I can fathom.



Wait 30 minutes, write this.

What is happening now....??

What did you remove from the data dir?  Should be peers.dat, txleveldb and blk0001.dat at the minimum.  peers.dat because you may have been DoS'd...

I removed everything from the users/me/appdata/roaming/solarcoin directory except the wallet.dat from the 'old' 1.5 version.

peers.dat is created when V2.0 starts on a fresh directory, and it is corrupted so it goes off to find addresses via UPnP and then DNS discovery.  These addresses seem valid and functional, but V2 cannot make contact.  It finds 5 addresses :

UPnP Port Mapping successful.
ipcThread started
connection timeout
trying connection 65.254.248.148:18188 lastseen=121.7hrs
Added 1 addresses from ::: 0 tried, 2 new
connection timeout
trying connection 65.254.248.148:18188 lastseen=121.7hrs
Added 1 addresses from ::: 0 tried, 3 new
5 addresses found from DNS seeds

Interestingly I can ping the rejected addresses successfully, but the v2.0 cannot seem to make contact. 

It also refuses to start again if interrupted and you can put what switches you like in the calling line.  You have to delete everything, and then restart with a fresh copy of wallet.dat to make it even start again properly.  But that is a futile exercise as it doesn't want to contact anything.

Thank goodness there is plenty of time to debug this before 80K....
 

Back to the original software and a totally 'old' copy of the data dir (as you put it) and all is well.  So no, I am not being DoSed, nor are the v2.0 addresses - it is probably just the distro that is stuffed.

Depressing really.

The update from 1.5 to 2.0 (b12) wallet still does not work for me under my test conditions - 1.5 wallet crashes in b12 after 1 run & exit and then trying to run b12 a second time. Also noticed transactions NOT going out from a 2.0 (in b12) to a 1.5 (in 1.5) wallet as well as between 2.0 wallets (both in b12, one of them being a 1.5 wallet - the one that crashes after exiting b12 and trying to start it again). The latter do show up at both the sender and the recipient wallets, but stay unconfirmed. 2.0 (in b12) to 1.5 (in 1.5) transfers do NOT show up in the recipient 1.5 wallet at all (this is for a transfer from a NEW 2.0 wallet in b12 to a 1.5 wallet in a working 1.5 version of the software). In the previous b11, transactions worked in all directions (1.5 <-> 2.0, 2.0 <-> 2.0)
I'd like to post all conditions & results now (incl. some persistent error messages), but do have a question before that - is this still the test doc to use?:

Yes, that's the one - same as in b11. This does not happen ONLY with a new wallet created by b12.
IMO, there should be a check for the wallet.dat version on opening the QT , then correctly upgrading it if needed, only then the software should be given permission to start using it. This should not depend in any way on the software version upgrade process, since the wallet.dat file is meant to be independent of the software installation/package files.

PS: PoST is currently set to kick in after height 800000.  This will give the exchanges time to update their software. After 800000, there will be a delay of up to 6 hours before PoST blocks begin generating.  The software is designed to begin staking as soon as you login to the wallet.  So there's nothing you need to do to stake besides the initial encryption of the wallet.  Just login and begin earning interest.  If you choose not to stake, there is an option to turn it off: Settings->Disable Staking.  Staking is the equivalent of mining in PoW. If there were no miners, the network would grind to a halt, so staking is critical for the health of the network.

Hello v,

Once 2.0 has been installed, 1.5 will not start in the same data directory.  This is because of the blk0001.dat that 2.0 creates.  If you need to run 1.5 again, remove the blk0001.dat and the txleveldb directory first.  Also, you will need to restore an original 1.5 wallet.dat.

All, I am running a variety of wallet.dat tests to make sure the transition from 1.5 to 2.0 is smooth for the novice user. When I have completed the tests, I will post a new beta 14 (skipping 13, well, because) which will also have end-of-pow at height 810000.

Most of my testing at the moment is with the transition from PoW to PoST in the testnet environment.  It takes at least two days to run each test, which is causing some delay.  I am currently on my last or next-to-last testnet iteration. Smiley

Thanks for all of your feedback.

Just to make it more clear - I am not trying to run 1.5 (software) on the 2.0 (software) test machines, all testing was about the transition from 1.5 to 2.0, or a new 2.0 installation. All references to 1.5 on the test machines are about the wallet.dat version. When testing transactions between 1.5 (software) and 2.0 (software), I am using the test machines with 2.0 software installed and other machines with 1.5 installed.

Thank you for the update, will be expecting b14 to re-test same scenarios.

Also I will now post to the test doc the other issues I found:
https://docs.google.com/document/d/1XwysiXK9sflUNFZIpNT18zc6nIOdivSpa1uYlUlSVpY/edit?pli=1
assuming there isn't another version of this document to use.

Thanks!

The update from 1.5 to 2.0 (b12) wallet still does not work for me under my test conditions - 1.5 wallet crashes in b12 after 1 run & exit and then trying to run b12 a second time. Also noticed transactions NOT going out from a 2.0 (in b12) to a 1.5 (in 1.5) wallet as well as between 2.0 wallets (both in b12, one of them being a 1.5 wallet - the one that crashes after exiting b12 and trying to start it again). The latter do show up at both the sender and the recipient wallets, but stay unconfirmed. 2.0 (in b12) to 1.5 (in 1.5) transfers do NOT show up in the recipient 1.5 wallet at all (this is for a transfer from a NEW 2.0 wallet in b12 to a 1.5 wallet in a working 1.5 version of the software). In the previous b11, transactions worked in all directions (1.5 <-> 2.0, 2.0 <-> 2.0)
I'd like to post all conditions & results now (incl. some persistent error messages), but do have a question before that - is this still the test doc to use?:

Thanks!

Also SolarCoin 2.00 B12 is available. https://www.dropbox.com/s/6msklpu1we70pt0/SolarCoin-2.0b12-setup.exe?dl=0

~~~  Additional info about B12  ~~~

This version has had no issues upgrading 1.5 wallet.dat’s to 2.0, and also includes new graphics.

IMPORTANT: Before installing the new beta, please delete the contents of your beta test Data Dir (C:\Users\{your name}\AppData\Roaming\SolarCoin\).  This includes peers.dat, blk0001.dat, txleveldb, (optionally, database and debug.log), and if you are running with a beta wallet.dat, remove it as well, provided there are no coins in it.  If you are running beta with a “live” wallet.dat from 1.5, please replace it with a backup version from your 1.5 wallet to ensure it upgrades properly.  Your coins will be restored when the wallet is fully synced.

We’re getting really close!

We are now targeting block 825,000. But steve will let you know as he is coding it into the beta.  Again focus is on reliability and stability of blockchain more than on speed of release.  All of those running beta 2.00 with versions 12 and earlier should stop running those versions and wait for next release from onsightit.
