If this is your first time connecting the rig and you cannot see the nvidia cards, it is recommended to update the drivers for the video cards. Follow the instructions:

  • Go to the rig page, stop GPU and CPU miner and in the top menu click on "Shell start"

Start shell

  • A sign "> Shell start" will appear on the barn card. Click on it to get a link to access the SSH of the rig. The link looks like - "http://shell.mineros.info/ssh/?64GL8dzNCPCQDfe"

Run shell

  • Follow the link and get into the SSH of the rig. Press "q" and enter the command "nv_update" (without quotes)
  • The first step is to download the drivers that weigh 100-200 MB, then the installation takes place, and upon completion its rig will be rebooted. This process may take some time depending on your internet and CPU speed (~2-10 mins). You must wait while your rig will be rebooted!
  • After rebooting the rig, the cards should appear. The fact that the drivers have been updated can be seen on the rig page -> INFO AND SYSTEM in the NVIDIA DRIVER VERSION column

We charge a small service fee to cover operating and development costs so that we can continually increase the profitability and functionality of the software.

  • 3 rigs with any number of video cards - for free
  • 4 or more rigs - payment is charged for each rig and is $1 per month for each rig (the lowest price in the mining industry)

The following system of discounts depends on the number of rigs:

  • 50+ devices - 10% off
  • 100+ devices - 20% off
  • 250+ devices - 30% off
  • 500+ devices - 40% off
  • 1000+ devices - 50% off

Thus, the minimum price per rig is $0.5 per month per device.

Additionally, periodical discounts are held! Follow the news page and telegram channel!

There are currently several options for accessing the rig:

  1. Via putty under Windows (if you are on the same network as rig)
    Login: mine
    Password: mine
  2. Via Unix terminal (if you are on the same network as rig)
    Team: ssh [email protected]
    Password: mine
  3. Via the built-in MinerOS web console (if in different networks with rig)
  4. Via MinerOS Remote Terminal (for simple commands)
  5. Through a third-party teleconsole service (if in different networks with a rig)
    Installation: curl https://www.teleconsole.com/get.sh | sh
    Get Console ID: teleconsole
    Usage: https://teleconsole.com/s/CONSOLE_ID

AMD drivers for video cards give out power consumption only of the chip, and not the entire video card. Therefore, consumption indicators will be underestimated. If you want your rig consumption to be displayed more accurately, you can adjust this using the consumption multiplier. This is a purely visual thing, i.e. you bring consumption closer to its real value and you can see a more accurate forecast of earnings on the dashboard. By default, this coefficient = 1.0. If you need to increase the power consumption icdicator by 20%, set 1.2 to the apropirate field.

PIN is a security token. In order for the rig to reach the server, the PIN in the configuration file must match the PIN in the user profile in your account. By default, the PIN in both places is set to "12345".

How to connect rig with admin panel?

As you know, in order to associate mining rigs with the MinerOS control panel, an e-mail address in the configuration file is enough. It is very comfortable. You can download a personalized image from your personal account (which already contains your authorization e-mail) and burn it immediately to all rigs without changing anything in the settings. The name of the rig and other fields can be changed later from the control panel.

So why do you need a PIN?

If an attacker recognizes your authorization e-mail, he can add his rigs to your control panel by entering an e-mail in the config. The problem is not dangerous, and extremely rare, but we decided to protect ourselves from this situation by adding a PIN check. An attacker must also additionally know your PIN in order to do his dirty business.

How to change PIN?

  • When you download a personalized image from the "Download Image" page in your account there is a PIN field. The default PIN is 12345, you can enter any other and it will be registered on the fly in the downloaded image.
  • If you download the general image, then after burning the image, go to MINEROS_DISK://auth.txt on Windows, find the pin field there and change it as you need.
  • If you download the general image, then after burning the image mount the drive in Linux OS using the mount command and edit the auth.txt file there.
  • If the rig already works and you need to change the PIN, just go to the cd /config directory and edit the auth.txt file.

VDDC (mV) - is the GPU core voltage 
VDDCI (mV) - is the I/O bus voltage (between memory and GPU core) and comes from the PCI-Express slot
MVDD (mV) - is the memory voltage

 

The default value for Navi GPUs is 1350 mV. The allowed range is 1250-1350 mV.

For Polaris cards the approximate value is 900 mV.

  1. If everything works well, then do not update the driver
  2. Stop mining on the rig where driver updates are planned
  3. Call the command /home/utils/nv_update in the rig terminal and the script will download, install the latest drivers, and reboot the rig. If you need to install any specific drivers from the collection, simply add their name as a parameter, for example: /home/utils/nv_update NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-440.31.run
  4. Driver names can be found in the MinerOS driver collection.
  5. Patiently wait for the drivers to be installed. When everything is completed, the rig will reboot

P.S. Do not use "Remote Terminal" in your account to update drivers. If you are on the same network as the rig, then use SSH access to the rig (login: mine, password: mine). If you are not on the same network with the rig, then use "Shell start" from your personal account to create an SSH tunnel.
