Re: Error when joining the channel

Hi Marina,

I would check the order log to see what the problems are. You can find some help with what to look for with this stack overflow post:

My guess is that your org does not have permission to create a channel in the orderer system channel. or is not a member of the system channel consortium.

Subject: [EXTERNAL] [Hyperledger Fabric] Error when joining the channel



I used to be able to create the channel using the channel transaction and join the channel with the command :

peer channel join -o localhost:7050 -b ./acmechannel.block


I got the following error:


2020-02-01 09:24:48.338 UTC [channelCmd] InitCmdFactory -> INFO 001 Endorser and orderer connections initialized

Error: proposal failed (err: rpc error: code = Unknown desc = access denied: channel [] creator org [Org1MSP])


I made sure that the identity of the peer is admin. I’m really not sure why I keep getting this error.

Thank you,
