This will create config file and other needed files in ~/.local/share/storj/storagenode/config.yaml and ~/.local/share/storj/storagenode/storage Now you need to edit ~/.local/share/storj/storagenode/config.yaml and make changes as needed (wallet, identity files and data storage locations, email, storage size)
