I am running a private Quorum chain consisting of 3 nodes with raft consensus. When I deploy a contract to the chain via web3 I get returned a hash and can then look up the transaction with the local geth console (geth attach qdata/geth.ipc) and check its status with eth.getTransaction(hash), so I get this:

  blockHash: "0x0000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000",
  blockNumber: null,
  from: "0xc58a28d310c76e8298fa086381e6f2da9f046c07",
  gas: 4700000,
  gasPrice: 0,
  hash: "0x75bf6fc10400fa493851b8105973e9b5aab2955dc5d87d217f13ed9562ccafbd",
  input: "0xc2f448268ee5019782beeaee884bc92112187a16af7b23df948fd0f867ecb2f41f34f34e477e2ddd53c74ef20fc48b0ebcda0a003f991f9c6e1a4bedfc65288d",
  nonce: 0,
  r: "0x3cd6c0a90a9b2367d6d47f081ad8509ea374f4db54bbf51eb9ace8360e50bc7a",
  s: "0x6d6cabc76a0d7774ada6ba753d06be0400353a5d3d42d85c92c4db7b8ad2f7bd",
  to: null,
  transactionIndex: 0,
  v: "0x26",
  value: 0

But there is no address! So why is the transaction still not mined?

EDIT: Here is the code I used to deploy the contract:

const Web3 = require('web3-quorum');
const web3 = new Web3(new Web3.providers.HttpProvider('http://..SERVER_ADDRESS..:22000'));

var abiArray = [{...ABI...}];
var simpleContract = web3.eth.contract(abiArray);
var bytecode = "0x6080604052348...";
const account = '0xc58a28d310c76...';

var nonce = web3.eth.getTransactionCount(account);
const contractData = {
    from: account,
    data: bytecode,
    gas: 0x47b760,
    privateFor: ["oUEMYuV2DOlgk88JxKx..."],
    nonce: '0x' + nonce

//contract instance
const contractInstance = simpleContract.new(123, contractData, function(e, contract) {
    if (e) {
        console.log("err creating contract", e);
    } else {
        if (!contract.address) {
            console.log("Contract transaction send: TransactionHash: " + contract.transactionHash + " waiting to be mined...");
        } else {
            console.log("Contract mined! Address: " + contract.address);
  • can you share the code that sent the transaction ? is it inside a loop ? how much did the transaction stay in pending ? – Kaki Master Of Time Dec 18 '18 at 16:42
  • @KakiMasterOfTime sure, I edited my question. Actually the pending tx is not the matter, its more about why there is no contract address after deployment and eth.getTransaction. – saitam Dec 18 '18 at 18:35

    I think you should look at this. github.com/jpmorganchase/quorum/blob/master/docs/api.md#returns thought it might look the same, quorum has some key differences with the base ethereum, I think this is one of them. – Kaki Master Of Time Dec 18 '18 at 19:48
