Couldn't initialize permission database for blockchain

+1 vote

Hi I am trying to connect to my chain from another server (another instance of the terminal, running on the same PC). I type multichaind chain1@, and I get this message:

MultiChain Core Daemon build 1.0 beta 1 protocol 10008

IO error: C:\Users\slava.sukhoy\AppData\Roaming\MultiChain\chain1\permissions.db\MANIFEST-000004: The handle is invalid.

ERROR: Couldn't initialize permission database for blockchain chain1. Probably multichaind for this blockchain is already running. Exiting...

What am I doing wrong? I used to work earlier. It also doesn't give me any wallet addresses, so Ican't manage permissions.

You cannot run two instances of MultiChain on the same computer, without ensuring that the two instances are using different directories. Take a look at the -datadir parameter, more details in this answer:
