must I restart the node if I change

If I add new peer addresses in the fie, must I restart the blockchain on that server or will it automatically pick up the changes as it rereads the file? Does it reread the file automatically to pick up any changes while it is running, and if so how regularly, at what intervals?

You need to restart the node

hi yes I asked chatGPT and it told me so, too. I guess I will just manually stop the docker container and then add new nodes and then restart the docker container once I add new nodes to the peer list.
