Today my tor relay started reporting the HSDir flag out of nowhere. I do not have a hidden service configured. Is this something i should worry about? Everything looks fine, and i see no services runing that shouldnt be. As far as i can tell tor hasnt created any hs certs or hostname file. Is this just some sort of glitch?

Ok now ot dissapeared. Not sure what the issue was or still is.

Having the HSDir flag has nothing to do with whet...



Your relay can have flags such as fast, HSDir, Guard, etc by default if it has good bandwidth and sufficient active duration.

It can not become exit by default.
