I am baking tezos, I checked logs and saw errors:

Apr 10 06:25:07 xxxx /var/log/tezos/tezos_endor.log[14727]: Apr 10 06:25:07 - client.scheduling: Error while baking:
Apr 10 06:25:07 xxxx /var/log/tezos/tezos_endor.log[14727]: Apr 10 06:25:07 - client.scheduling: Error:
Apr 10 06:25:07 xxx /var/log/tezos/tezos_endor.log[14727]: Apr 10 06:25:07 - client.scheduling:   No Ledger found for focused-abyssinian-xxxx-xxx/ed25519

Does anyone know this error? I imported ledger information already.

  • Is your ledger connected ?

Your Ledger device must stay plugged in and running the baking app to be able to bake and endorse blocks. Once the device is set up, you do not need to manually sign when you have rights - it will automatically sign for you!

It sounds like you have already imported the address you'd like to bake with. If not, plug your Ledger into your machine and open the Tezos Baking app. Then run:

tezos-client list connected ledgers

You should see that it found your device and provides a few commands for importing addresses. Here's an example of one of those which imports an address from the device and gives it the alias ledger_alias, which you'll use to refer to your address when running other commands:

tezos-client import secret key ledger_alias "ledger://adjective-animal-adjective-animal/ed25519/0'/0'"

Once imported, we can 1) setup the Ledger to bake for ledger_alias and 2) register ledger_alias as a delegate (baker) on the blockchain.

1 - tezos-client setup ledger to bake for ledger_alias

If your Ledger isn't authorized, the device will read 'Baking Key: No Key Authorized' from the baking app. Once it is authorized, it will show your PKH (most likely a tz1 address).

2 - tezos-client register key ledger_alias as delegate

Then start your baker and endorser so they use that account:

  • Baker: tezos-baker-003-PsddFKi3 run with local node ~/.tezos-node ledger_alias
  • Endorser: tezos-endorser-003-PsddFKi3 run ledger_alias

That's it! For more information, here's the full docs for Tezos Baking - https://github.com/obsidiansystems/ledger-app-tezos#using-the-tezos-baking-application

  • Thank you, but I already did it. i have been baking for 25 days, but no rewards received. Can you help check the correctness of my baking. tzscan.io/tz1e2meErj7eEfXwqr7bDK6N1YatmLaugfMp

  • why i missed a lot of endorsements while commands like 1. tezos-baker-003-PsddFKi3 run with local node ~/.tezos-node ledger_<...>_ed_0_0 2. tezos-endorser-003-PsddFKi3 run ledger_<...>_ed_0_0 3. tezos-accuser-003-PsddFKi3 run running.

  • You need to have your ledger connected while baking. Please double check that it is plugged in and the Baking app is open Commented Apr 11, 2019 at 14:33

Your baking instance cannot find your ledger device. Make sure it is plugged in and that you can see it with tezos-client list connected ledgers. The device needs to remain connected while baking.
