(AKA Creating a new Node Operator Record)

WARNING: Superseded -- please edit Node Provider NNS proposals instead!

If the HSM that was used to deploy your nodes gets lost or corrupted, you can either replace the HSM with a new one, or you can replace the principal using the HSM-less method.

To replace using the HSM-less method, use steps 1, 5, 6, 7, 10, of the Node Provider Onboarding instructions. Please note:

  • When the proposal is submitted in step 10, you will need to wait several days for the proposal to pass.
  • Make sure you explain in your proposal who you are and why you are replacing the principal to help ensure that your proposal is accepted by the community.
  • You will then create the IC-OS image with the new principal, and it will be used to onboard the nodes using the options in the onboarding directions for using a node_operator_private_key.pem file.
