Keosd Troubleshooting

How to solve the error "Failed to lock access to wallet directory; is another keosd running"?

Since cleos may auto-launch an instance of keosd, it is possible to end up with multiple instances of keosd running. That can cause unexpected behavior or the error message above.

To fix this issue, you can terminate all running keosd instances and restart keosd. The following command will find and terminate all instances of keosd running on the system:

pkill keosd
