Node is stuck on GenerateID

Hello everybody,

I have spin up a node to test the waters. I used the default installation from DigitalOcean’s marketplace and added my node to to monitor it.

It’s been 40mins and the status is still stuck on Generating ID. I have read this step should take about 15mins. I am not sure that is just an average and the generation process depends on the computing power (I have a very small droplet).

Anybody could clarify?


Hi, it is entirely normal to have a very long generateID time. 15 minutes is average, and some nodes can have significantly longer time. Basically it is solving a crypto puzzle, and there are lots of randomness in it. Please wait patiently until the generateID is completed.
