I exported the private key from Metamask and wants to import it into
geth is running on Windows 10.
geth is started using
geth --rinkeby --rpc --rpcapi="personal,eth,network,net,web3" --rpcport 8545 --rpcaddr 127.0.0.1 --unlock "0xcede48d8ac162d1b08ed9419010de3c99f2cfdd6" console
this prompts me to enter the password
Unlocking account 0xcede48d8ac162d1b08ed9419010de3c99f2cfdd6 | Attempt 1/3 Passphrase: Fatal: Failed to unlock account 0xcede48d8ac162d1b08ed9419010de3c99f2cfdd6 (no key for given address or file)
Why is it failing to unlock the account even though the password I entered into
geth is the same password that was used to export the private key from Metamask?
