There is node on my 4-nodes blockchain, i will call it nodeA. Yesterday, I rebooted my VMs and the multichain on nodeA started misbehaving by seemingly shutting down itself (even after starting it, confirming it can see other nodes) after less than minute, i can't reach it anymore via the multichain-cli.
So i deleted that blockchain folder on nodeA and reconnected it to other nodes (effectively recreating everything). The confusing thing now is, using gettotalbalances on all the other nodes gives me an empty json, despite the fact that i had transferred some "gold" asset to them (from nodeA) some days before. I can also see the "gold" asset through listassets on all the nodes but none of them that the asset was previously transferred to from nodeA has the asset in their balance.
What is the reason for this?
On a side note (maybe it is relevant to why it was crashing), what i observed with nodeA after the VMs reboot, was that it notices the other network connections on that VM (minus the primary one it uses) and gave them as option should other nodes want to connect to it.
