Run your new node with the same genesis file as the others then run geth and add the nodes using : admin.addpeer () E.g

  • This is just for adding a peer but i want to add a peer without stopping my network and without any disturbance to other peers. May 9, 2017 at 4:38

    you add to your new nodes the existing nodes or some of them and don't forget to use the same genesis file
