I have a geth POA private blockchain setup and running with 2 sealer nodes. Now I have setup a 3rd node as a sealer, and ran the following command on the both existing sealer nodes
clique.propose("0x555c9e3d738837d14ebda7cad9359f840f3c650c", true) > null
and we confirm that the 3rd node has been voted because we see the address of the 3rd node when we run
clique.getSigners() along with the other two sealer nodes' address.
Problem: However after we start and restart the 3rd geth node that we are trying to add as a sealer node, we get the error
INFO [08-24|21:25:55.169] Commit new mining work number=1 sealhash=e935f6…e90182 uncles=0 txs=0 gas=0 fees=0 elapsed=256.472µs
WARN [08-24|21:25:55.170] Block sealing failed err=unauthorized
This error persists even when running
clique.propose(...,true) on the 3rd node to for itself.
On Ethstats, we see that this 3rd node is stuck at block #0 and never tries to sync the blockchaibn.
Any help is greatly appreciated!
