  • How are you sure it mining the Mainnnet? This looks like a dev chain to me – Samuel Dare Aug 27 '20 at 12:45
  • When I start the node, the it shows INFO Starting Geth on Ethereum mainnet.... I have also found ethash folder generated on the machine, I have deleted it and now it's not being generated @SamuelDare – Div Aug 27 '20 at 12:49
  • nodeInfo output chainId 1919, on logs it's reported the same (Initialised chain configuration line), try to clean all folders and do init again, seems all corrects. – Dibi91 Aug 27 '20 at 14:58
  • @Dibi91 The issue is, my chain was running fine, there was a space issue, I have checked and found ethash folder consuming 29GB, searched online, and found safe to delete that file. Deleted and start node again...it shows block-height 1 and all transaction goes into pending. I can't my previous blocks and data... – Div Aug 27 '20 at 16:29
  • Sorry, did not read carefully the starting command, see the answer :) – Dibi91 Aug 28 '20 at 10:11

You should add at the starting command the networkid flag.

From the geth help command:

--networkid value    Network identifier (integer, 1=Frontier, 3=Ropsten, 4=Rinkeby, 5=Görli) (default: 1)

So without value, it get 1 as default and goes on mainnet
