Discovery tool is a new minerstat tool that is available on the workers' list page and will help you discover your msOS rigs in the local network with unchanged config.js file or minerstat applications installed on your Windows rigs. You can use it in different situations:
The tool is currently available only for msOS and Windows rigs and you need to be logged in to the minerstat dashboard from the same local network as where your worker is. If you don't have a computer at your location, you can also use mobile phone as our dashboard is fully responsive and the tool will work from mobile too.
Both of these requirements must be met in order for discovery tool to work:
You can use discovery tool only for msOS rigs that weren't added to your dashboard yet and for which you didn't change the config.js file. Let's say that you have flashed new version of msOS on your SSD and Windows doesn't allow you to change config.js file. You can unplug the SSD and plug it to your rig. Instead of waiting by the rig with keyboard and screen, go to minerstat dashboard and click on [Discover new workers].
A new screen will pop up and if you are in the same local network, you can click on [Start scanning].
Discovery tool will scan your network for msOS rigs that aren't assigned to the dashboard yet and you will be able to add them one by one to your dashboard.
Once you click [Add], you can receive two outcomes:
If Discovery tool didn't find any workers, then you will need to add new worker manually by clicking on the button [Add new worker]. Once you do, you can update the access key and worker name on the rig by entering
mworker accesskey workername command.
We have currently added this tool only for msOS and Windows rigs, but we are planning to extend it to ASICs as well if this will be possible.
