The Setup Menus
Here's more information about each setup menu along the way!
Start Installer Application Run this option if you are loading a brand new server for the very first time.
Start Validator Toolbox Menu Run this option if you are loading the toolbox on a server that is already running as a harmony validator node.
Simply pick the shard this node will run on. It's a personal preference, although we suggest looking at the smart stake site and determining which shard of 1-3 has the lowest # of keys and using that shard.
Standard Signing Node Known to most as a "Harmony Validator" this option loads a wallet and saves your passphrase in ~/harmony/passphrase.txt
Full Node Non Validating Dev/RPC Choose this option to load a system that doesn't use a wallet. Mostly used by developers and RPC services
The main Harmony ONE Blockchain for normal operations.
The Harmony ONE Testnet, use with test tokens. You can visit our discord community if you need test network coins, we have plenty.
Assumes you want the kitchen sink for your validator.
Manual Approval This lets you choose y/n on every option along the way.
Enter a password for your wallet on this node. It's unique to this server
Add your mnemonic phrase here directly into the hmy file interface. We do not store or save this information.
New Users - If you do not have a wallet yet, press ctrl+c to skip wallet recovery and after installation you can manually create or import a wallet of your choosing.
You will now start cloning your shards. If you choose shard 1-3 that shard will download before shard 0. You can press ctrl+c to cancel downloading of any shard to move past that download.
As mentioned earlier, if you do not have sudoless root access, you will be prompted for a password, which is often several lines up from the bottom of the screen and sometimes hard to see.
