Recovering nodes

+1 vote
I'm trying to recover a test chain that has a corrupt admin node database and can not start.

I have 3 healthy nodes running, the only admin node is corrupt and on start displays: "ERROR: Couldn't initialize asset database for network <chain>. Exiting..."

I was under the impression that this wouldn't be a problem since I have a wallet.dat and multichain.conf (see ). When I try this I am asked to give permission to connect on another node but there is no admin node left, so how do I recover this test node?

It sounds like the node you're recovering may not be using the right address to connect to other nodes, if it has several addresses in its wallet. You can use the handshakelocal runtime parameter to tell multichaind which address to use for handshaking with other nodes, out of those in its wallet.
