I can't deploy my contract to Rinkeby network through truffle migrate --reset --network rinkeby.

My truffle.js file looks like this:

{ networks: { rinkeby: { { from : 'my_unlocked_and_non_empty_wallet_address', network_id : 4, gas : 2700000, gasPrice : 20000000000, host : "localhost", port : 8545 } } } }

Geth node is running inside Docker at the same host where I try to deploy. I've successfully connected to this node via truffle console.

When I run truffle migrate --reset --network rinkeby I have an error:

Running migration: 1_initial_migration.js Deploying Migrations... ... 0x076235e944e70e561a0b9b6b14307157d07775d67a46689e44ffaf7675829b84 /home/admin/.nvm/versions/node/v8.2.1/lib/node_modules/truffle/build/cli.bundled.js:30534 throw new Error('invalid address'); ^

Contract creation transaction from output can be founded here: 0x076235e944e70e561a0b9b6b14307157d07775d67a46689e44ffaf7675829b84

There is a result of little debugging cli.bundled.js file.

This is what I get whe try to deploy in testrpc network:

... 0x34865735e70707919805f2850b823e67adb25ff0fe059d5ece5836d9430a7208 [ [Function: inputAddressFormatter], [Function: inputDefaultBlockNumberFormatter] ] [ '0x97280c75faa2e7e1b2a182e34fffcb77c58b9b56' ] Migrations: 0x97280c75faa2e7e1b2a182e34fffcb77c58b9b56

And in Rinkeby network:

... 0xa2a4697161936052f320bbce9171600741cf155785d25ecf45d914f1445be648 [ [Function: inputAddressFormatter], [Function: inputDefaultBlockNumberFormatter] ] [ null ]

As we can see, in the case of Rinkeby we have null instead of valid contract address. But... why has it happened?

Ok, I went deeper.

So, when executes this line (https://github.com/ethereum/web3.js/blob/7560f273359071afae31d010b97fa1872dacd66c/lib/web3/contract.js#L119) of web3.js code (line 222802 in Truffel's cli.bundled.js) we are getting answer with null in contractAddress field.

For example:

{ blockHash: '0xd08cee7ec0d9e50185099ca403b53798081f94ba73bbb9caa7a72fa2afb2591f', blockNumber: 696482, contractAddress: null, cumulativeGasUsed: 201492, from: '0xdc2e0c6e3d08bc53200ea0a90ec4f550d9d1f616', gasUsed: 0, logs: [], logsBloom: '0x00000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000', root: '0x4ae760bf36bd646016db7018f16f6e5fadc2200aee17a89337b6d0a26534fb03', to: null, transactionHash: '0x6863a10cc9e42f62056f5defebd9f249ced92c024c1cb2ed94ae1a1efb1a5cc5', transactionIndex: 0 }

And example for testrpc which works properly:

{ transactionHash: '0x55bb0dc39488b897ced17831ff6308741045b463993d3b2d239748434b134b89', transactionIndex: 0, blockHash: '0xa04dc4a145b6884dfa78cfc4d55888b4e6c2ed41b8888cff72458728b474f6da', blockNumber: 15, gasUsed: 201262, cumulativeGasUsed: 201262, contractAddress: '0x0bfed93fdbcd00323918ad1d361cd999ba291ce4', logs: [] }

I've found the reason. contractAddress is null because I'm using geth node in embedded/light mode - it hasn't enough information about blockchain. Issue may be closed.
