    I'm having the same issue for a few hours now. This last time I started my hot wallets while on my first masternode, I thought I'd try dash-cli masternode start on the remote, and it worked, in that it said "masternode started successfully" (usually, all I have to do is dash-cli masternode debug) I did this with both my wallets online after start-many on my local hot wallet.

    Anyway, doing the same thing with my second MN wallet didn't work. I don't know what's wrong. Local says masternodes started successfully (in the start-many way) but no joy on remote for second wallet.

    I reindexed, got stuck 6 hrs behind, restarted and now have loaded to the latest block. The progress bar is stuck at 50% and says synchronizing masternodes. (win64 version) Is this a problem?

    Should we be removing the addnode line from the config file? I tried it with and without - no difference.

    Use ./dash-cli masternodelist full | grep "SERVER_IP"

    or from the console: masternodelist full YOUR_IP

    Just wait little more, network (masternodes) needs to be updated.
    And about addnode, i have not used that about 10 months now, so no need for that.

    We will see "Synchronizing masternodes... ", "Synchronizing masternode winners....", "Synchronizing budgets..", "Synchronizing sporks..." but they should go by quickly in a few minutes and disappear.

    Thanks.

    I found the wallet repair menu. Just select the box for reindexing, upgrading wallet, etc. Slick.

    Weird, I just did a "masternode debug" in the hot local wallet, and got "Node just started, not yet activated" I'm having trouble getting my remote wallet to see my local wallet (the hot one with the coins) and I normally don't use this command in the local wallet. Is this a normal feedback or the root of my problems, thanks for any help :)

    Of course, the wallet backup and now wallet repair tools. Thanks crowning. This will certainly make it easier for the nontechnical population.

    Just realized the donation feature was removed — pretty shocked actually. This will make managing coins a bit more difficult, for people with multiple masternodes paying out (donating) to a single address.

    Code:
    $ git bisect bad
    c72355335c5bcd74cbbe9635290c37ccc3583b6c is the first bad commit
    commit c72355335c5bcd74cbbe9635290c37ccc3583b6c

        Coinbase Payee Cache Implementation
    
        - Masternode nLastPaid is removed and a new caching system that keeps the last 30 days of coinbase payees replaces it
        - To deal with some significant attack vectors, the masternode donation feature was removed. The donation feature was added to support developement anyway, so this will be replaced by the budgeting code.
        -  This code should allow the network to come to consensus about who should be paid pretty effectively
    

    Yeah, I'm stuck at "Synchronized Masternode Winners" on the OSX client, have been for a few hours now.

    Yes, we see it, but there is only few masternodes which are updated so far, so we need to wait some more,
    and when Evan wakes up he is going to check what is current situation.

    This is known situation, but your blockchain is up to date and you can make normal transfers if you want.
    Probaply DS and IX wont work right now when (ds compatible) masternode count is low.

    Time for you to consolidate your masternodes in one wallet file to allow you to easily grab the mn payments to send to whatever address you like.

    Make sure you delete the block and chainstate folders, other folders except wallet.dat, masternode.conf, before you run your wallet.
    And you can get the bootstrap to help it sync faster from here:

    https://github.com/UdjinM6/dash-bootstrap

    Choose the bootstrap for mainnet

    They are in one wallet file. I want them in one address, so that I can check that one address on one web page, and not have to load multiple ones... for example, from my cell phone, when I'm out. I can't run Dash on my Android yet, but I can easily check a bookmark to an address which shows all payments.

    So use the masternode monitor app and load the masternode addresses for your phone. It will tell you when each get paid and the current balance.

    Do I need a bootstrap.conf for my remote masternodes or just my local hot wallet? I thought that I didn't need it for the local wallets, only the local hot wallet.

    I had it, but it wasn't showing my payments, so uninstalled it.

    There's no "bootstrap.conf" afaik. If you read that site: https://github.com/UdjinM6/dash-bootstrap, you will see instruction how to download the bootstrap and where to put it to run your wallet.

    bootstrap.dat is the blockchain file to help your wallet sync faster, and once it's synced, "bootstrap.date" becomes "bootstrap.dat.old" which you can delete.

    I hope the next update will be a while because I just finished getting my masternodes hopefully working after 4 or 5 hours, LOL. All I ask is that we get a break before another update! All I did was start and stop and start and stop until it took. No idea what went wrong, but they're both saying masternode started successfully, so I'm happy :)

    Should I be worried if my nodes don't show up on DashNinja?

    Mine said they started OK, but they did NOT!

    I just noticed another new file masternode.conf. looking at the guides here in the wiki did not help me.

    Format: alias IP:port masternodeprivkey collateral_output_txid collateral_output_index

    I know the masternodeprivkey
    I think i know what the collateral_output_txid

    what is the collateral_output_index ?

    HELP

    Or if you want to run the command from your wallet. This will give you hash and index for available transactions in your wallet. Type:
    masternode outputs

    You can still do it the old way, but I like using masternode.conf so that I can send income to a different account. I'm also checking mine every once in a while to make sure they stay on. They're still on at this moment.

    Tante, If I am understanding this correctly, the donate feature is gone in this release. Bummer - I really liked having rewards go to a donating address or separate account.

    I am with nmarley on this. The donation feature is really useful. I have wasted a lot of time from mistakenly spending coins from a masternode input by forgetting to use coin control. It is so much easier if the coins are automatically transferred to a separate spending wallet. I am sure the MN operators that manage other users coins will also use the donate feature pretty heavily. It was possible to run a paper wallet transaction that is used as masternode collateral, but now that will need to be cashed out again and again as they accumulate coins.

    I... have no idea what I was thinking. I actually meant "masternode.conf" the entire time there... sorry for the confusion!
