But only one present on etherscan (found in testnet): https://ropsten.etherscan.io/block/1586395

Is it normal situation? How to get rid of this?

Plz help.

    Where did you get the hashes from? I assume that there was simply a chain reorganisation. One is part of the longest chain, the other is not. – Thomas Clowes Aug 31 '17 at 11:51
  • Took hashes from local node in testnet. – DeV1doR Aug 31 '17 at 12:56
  • Calling eth.getBlock(1586395) which block do you get? A chain reorganization should adjust with time. – Ismael Aug 31 '17 at 16:57
  • I will receive this one ropsten.etherscan.io/block/1586395. Don't understand, why my local node does not delete orphaned block with hash 0x162ae4b189f77ed65d0be270aa8dea08d4e7dcd70432a7d1fd4e6b0fb1b301d6 (when the valid is 0xa9625a969941619b6a34497dc7b337df95c99378081177ea9a026a6712d266ef) – DeV1doR Aug 31 '17 at 17:54
  • Perhaps it is included as an uncle in another block. – Ismael Aug 31 '17 at 23:58
