Restore a Validator

Restore a validator

A validator can be completely restored on a new Sei node with the following set of keys:
  • The Consensus key, stored in ~/.sei/config/priv_validator.json
  • The mnemonic to the validator wallet
Before proceeding, ensure that the existing validator is not active. Double voting has severe slashing consequences.
To restore a validator:
  1. 1.
    Setup a full Sei node synced up to the latest block.
  2. 2.
    Replace the ~/.sei/config/priv_validator.json file of the new node with the associated file from the old node, then restart your node.
