IO error: .multichain-other/permissions.db/LOCK: No such file or directory

+1 vote
I am trying to run two nodes on the same server, as described here:

I can create and start the first node without problem:

# multichain-util create chaintest

# multichaind chaintest -daemon

However, when I want to create the second node with this command:

# multichaind -datadir=.multichain-other -port=10255 -rpcport=10254 chaintest@

then I get this error:

MultiChain Core Daemon build 1.0 alpha 26 protocol 10006

IO error: /home/morten/.multichain-other/permissions.db/LOCK: No such file or directory

ERROR: Couldn't initialize permission database for blockchain chaintest. Probably multichaind for this blockchain is already running. Exiting...

The .multichain-other directory needs to exist before you call multichaind with it set in the -datadir parameter - we've corrected those instructions you found. Of course the error message you're seeing is also misleading, and we'll fix that as well.
