A staker can customize and update the operators managing their validator (cluster) at their discretion, allowing them to run it according to their own preferences.
To update a validator’s managing operators, follow these steps:
Offboard from the network by removing the validator from its managing cluster.
Wait for at least two epochs to mitigate slashing risk associated with simultaneous validator setups.
Onboard the validator to the network by registering it to a new cluster.
Please note that as each onboarding process revolves around splitting your validator key into shares and distributing them to operators, each set of generated shares will always be valid when their signing threshold is met. To mitigate collusion of previous operators, it is advised to not change more than 2 of the validator’s managing operators when changing its cluster.
