In a blockchain in general there is no objective "time of the transaction", just the time that the transaction was confirmed in a block, and the time it was first seen by the node. If the transaction involves one of the node's addresses, the latter can be found using an API like getwallettransaction.

I've turned down my first server, but now when i try to connect to the blockchain it says ERROR : clone blockchain
How can I reconnect to the chain knowing I have only 2 servers ( the first one which is the admin can no longer connect)
