Failed to start bor

Hello,

I tried to set up a null node and followed this page:Full Node Binaries | Matic Network | Documentation

After Heimdall was synced and I tried to start bor, I got this error:
Jun 19 14:17:01 systemd[1]: bor.service: Failed to load environment files: No such file or directory
Jun 19 14:17:01 systemd[1]: bor.service: Failed to run ‘start-pre’ task: No such file or directory
Jun 19 14:17:01 systemd[1]: Failed to start bor.

I used “journalctl” to check log and it showed as follows:

Did someone experience the same and could you give me some guide? Thank you.

Hi @matoy , your node is unable to find the peers. Try connecting to more peers. Do you have an active validator? if yes, then you can use Discord or Telegram in the validators queries section to streamline the communication.

You can refer to this documentation - Peer Connectivity

I have same problem. When I look at the logs it appears it’s looking for a missing file

I did the following to get BOR to start properly:
cd /etc
sudo mkdir matic
cd matic/
sudo touch metadata

I also encountered bor cannot be synchronized:
