I had a private ethereum blockchain with 1 node running in production. I accidentally ran a
geth init genesis.json --datadir . command in my main node.
Did this command overwrite the data directory folder of my main node? I was able to set up another node in the network on another server because
geth process was running on a Unix system service daemon, which means that the data folder wasn't actually unlinked while the process was running.
Now I have 2 private blockchain nodes and I want to stop and reset the 1st one, but I'm not sure what will happen to the blockchain. If I stop the 1st node and then use the 2nd node as a peer to resync the first node when I restart, will the chain be corrupted? I have miners on both nodes and I'm using a clique algorithm for consensus.
