Thank you again for your prompt response. So let me understand this.
I have 5 peer nodes in my network, each having a CouchDB instance on different ports mapping back to Port 5984.
Data documents are in the Peer1 CouchDB instance. When I docker exec into Peer 4's CouchDB instance and run the command to list all DBs, the DB holding the documents in Peer 1 CouchDB instance are NOT in Peer 4.
BUT...I can be in Peer 4's CouchDB instance, do a query, and the output will be returned? Is that what you're saying?
Because I just tried that with a small dataset of 10 records and I didn't get any output on Peer 4's CouchDB node.
However, when I docker exec into Peer 1's CouchDB node and do the query, I get the output.
