The CPU must support SGX (Software Guard Extensions) technology and FLC (Flexible Launch Control). The BIOS must support Intel SGX, and must enable the Intel SGX option. Please refer to the server manufacturer's BIOS guide to enable SGX functionality. Check out the CPU models that support SGX: CPU models.⚠
The machine must use a fixed public network IP. The traffic exit must be in the same network segment as the fixed public network IP. Execute the following command to confirm they are in the same network segment.
Consensus miner needs to create two accounts
- Stash account: for consensus miner’s staking and it requires at least 300000 TCESS, to ensure the successfulness, 1 more TCESS is recommended for the transaction.💰
- Controller account: for paying gas fees and it requires at least 100 TCESS.🎮
The "cess-nodeadm" is a CESS node deployment and management program. It can help deploy and manage storage nodes, consensus nodes and full nodes, lowering the operating threshold for all CESS miners.
