I have a participation node set up on my Windows 10 pro desktop. I used the installer from Randlabs github page. The node installed fine, fastcatchup to sync with the network went well and I was able to create a participation key. I am interacting with the node via command line tools.
I am having trouble registering the partkey online. When I run the goal account changeonlinestatus it throws the error that “txn validity period (14676300 to 17676300) is greater than protocol max txn lifetime 1000” Algorand dev docs recommends 3 million rounds, which is where i set the limits from.
Okay so I need to delete that partkey. When I run erase it states “the process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process” I tried RD as well, which returns the same error.
I don’t want to create a new partkey until I can delete the old one as I understand it is bad network behavior to have one address with multiple partkeys.
Can anyone help me resolve this?
