Issue more on Asset

+1 vote

I am sorry i think this will give you better context

My question is :

I have multichain running on two nodes.

On Node 1 - I created an address (address 1) under which i issued an asset. 

(Asset was issued with initial quantity of 1000 units)

On Node 2 - I have imported the address(address 1) here, I would like to do Issue more to asset created on Node 1.But it doesn't work. (I would like to add 100 units to same asset which was created on Node 1)

Can you guide me on this please?

Importing an address is not the same as having its private key. If you import an address to a node, that node can watch what happens with that address, but it cannot perform operations on its behalf. If you really want to do the latter, you should use dumpprivkey and importprivkey instead. But this detracts from the point of a blockchain, which is to limit the ability of individual nodes to perform actions to the entire ledger/database.
