Failed to register Finality Provider - Error: unauthorized

Trying to register finality provider and came up with this error:

“f!ailed to register the finality-provider to Babylon: unauthorized”

Any suggestions on how to fix this?

note: I am running a node- but the fp is tied to a different bbn addy from what I can see. Should it be tied to the node addy?? The addy I am using was funded from the node addy.
