This is a guide that is specific to most model of Bitmain Antminers despite the associated algorithm.

Find Worker Connection Details

Login to Stratumsphere and locate your HASH Scheduler under the Schedulers. Click on your scheduler. In the Overview page on the bottom you should see Worker Connection Details.

Worker Connection Details

Setup your Antminer

Login to your Antminer's UI and click on Miner Configuration -> General Settings

Setting the URL

Under Pool 1 and Pool 2 input your Primary Stratum and Secondary Stratum URLs.

Setting the Worker

DO NOT set your wallet or mining pool account as you would on a normal mining pool when not using Stratumsphere. Our system handles that for you whether the miner ends up on your personal pool or the end-user's rental mining pool. You simply need to treat the user or wallet address entry that you would normally use as the worker name.

Worker names cannot have any . or special characters like !@#$%^&*(). We suggest that you keep it simple with letters, numbers and dashes -.

It is suggested that you choose a unique worker name that makes it easy for you identify and find the Antminer within your facility so you can utilize Stratumsphere's monitoring capabilities. A good example of a worker name that's easy to find within a facility would be S9-RowA-Rack1.

Worker Password

x is the default worker password and is required.

Your Antminer's General Settings page should look similar to this:

General Settings Example

Starting the Antminer

Click Save & Apply in General Settings.

After a few moments you should see a successful connection to Stratumsphere under Miner Status in your Antminer UI. It will look just the same as any other mining pool with work being received and valid shares being submitted.

Your worker should appear on your HASH Scheduler's worker inventory after several minutes.

That's it, you should be done!

Important Considerations

Here are some important points you should be aware of with Antminers that are connected to Stratumsphere.

Stratumsphere requires a stable internet connection.
Frequent disconnects/reconnects will trigger flood protection on the scheduler and deny new workers. Restart your scheduler from the overview to reset this protection.
Worker names must be unique otherwise they will be flagged as duplicate which cannot be rented
There is nothing wrong with setting an outside mining pool for your third failover option on your mining software.
