Can other nodes keep mining without the mine node?

+1 vote
Lets say I have (A) the main node who start the blockchain whit its parameters. Now node (b) and node (c) connect to (A), (A) then grant permissions to connect, send and receive. Nodes (B) and (C) catch up to latest block but now I disconnect node (A) main. In my test nodes (B) and (C) stops block counting and will only keep checking blocks if node (A) is reconnected. Is there any way to resolve this?

You can grant mine (and indeed admin) permissions to other nodes, then the block generation will no longer be centralized. Please see the example at the end of the Getting Started guide:
