ChainCoin - "Could not allocate vin" error message and solution

in chaincoin •  2 years ago

If, when setting up a ChainCoin masternode, you see the "Could not allocate vin" message when attempting to start the masternode, do the following in your controller wallet...

  1. Enable coin control features.
    1. Go to Chaincoin-Qt > Preferences > Wallet tab
    2. Check "Enable coin control features"
  2. Click the Send tab in the wallet
  3. Click the "Inputs..." button
  4. Expand the masternode row by clicking the arrow/triangle on the left
  5. Right-click the row with the lock icon and 1000 CHC
  6. Select "unlock unspent" from the contextual menu
  7. Now start your masternode

I found the answer. One of your inputs has to be exactly 1000 CHC. If you go to the Send Tab, then "Inputs", you probably see just one input of 1001 CHC. You need to send a transaction to yourself by generating a new address (Click Receive tab and then "Request Payment") and send exactly 1000 CHC to your new address.

I tried that and now the "masternode outputs" command does give me TXID, and I was able to start the MN successfully.

Thanks! This saved me from sanity! Finally works.

oh and you can also add
mnconflock=0 to my wallet chaincoin.conf

I think it prevent the lock, for future problem.

Saved me! Thanks.

Although the setting seems to reset after re opening the wallet.
