    So I just launched my new masternode.

    I do a remote start, successful

    run "dash-cli masternode list full | grep" lists it as enabled

    perform ./dash-cli masternode status = error: {"code":-1,"message":"This is not a masternode\n"}

    I perform a grep HotCold as well. I got my masternode to show up on the network then it dropped out. masternode is set to 1 in the dash.conf file. anything else that I am missing?

    FIXED IT. Imported the old style Dash.conf format, worked right off the bat.

    Your dash.conf on vps has no line of:
    masternode=1

    edit: eventually send me via PM how your dash.conf looks like.

    As I said you have no line ;)
    You see this small sign in front of the line? #
    It simply make the line not valid.
    Stop your dashd, edit your config.
    Remove it from masternode=1 and masternodeblsprivkey=yourprivateblskeyhere
    and start dashd again.
    Let us know if works.
