This error means the database was in inconsistent state when the node crashed. You can remove entities.* and restart multichaind with -reindex=1.

thanks for the answer....we are betting in multichain solution...great job !
Where I can find entities.* files ? Because I can't find it inside of chain folder
Probably you are using older version of MultiChain (or the chain was created by old version). In this case you should delete assets.*
How can I upgrade to the new version? Is it difficult?
To upgrade MultiChain code, you just have to stop multichaind on all nodes (multichain-cli stop), download new version and start multichaind again.

But you cannot upgrade protocol version of existing chain. You can see chain protocol version (10002-10005) when multichaind starts or by running "multichain-cli getinfo" command. You have to create new chain ("multichain-util create").
I had the same problem in past
