Unable to connect nodes

+1 vote

Hi. I am new to MultiChain and not able to get started. Please help.

I am on Windows.

As per the tutorial, I created and started the first node with multichaind chain1 -daemon. Then I created and started a second node on the same machine using multichaind chain2 -daemon. Both nodes up and running. But when I connect node 2 to node 1 using multichaind chain1@ -daemon, I get this error. Please help: .

IO error: C:\Users\xxxxxxx\AppData\Roaming\MultiChain\chain1\permissions.db\MANIFEST-000017: The handle is invalid.

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

If you want to run two nodes on the same computer, you need to use the datadir runtime parameter to ensure they are running with separate data directories.
