Unable to launch/instantiate chaincode container

Siddharth Jain

we are running into a problem where chaincode container is not getting launched. full stacktrace can be found here but basically the execution reaches this point:

if err := r.Runtime.Start(ccci, codePackage); err != nil {
                startFailCh <- errors.WithMessage(err, "error starting container")
            exitCode, err := r.Runtime.Wait(ccci) // this is where we get an exitCode 1
            if err != nil {
                launchState.Notify(errors.Wrap(err, "failed to wait on container exit"))
            launchState.Notify(errors.Errorf("container exited with %d", exitCode))

and fails with

launchState.Notify(errors.Errorf("container exited with %d", exitCode))
2020-02-10 23:49:40.130 UTC [endorser] SimulateProposal -> ERRO 056 [tracktrace][b69889f9] failed to invoke chaincode name:"mycc" , error: container exited with 1

Things we have tried to debug:
  • verified the chaincode image is getting built
  • verified chaincode image has smart contract installed under /usr/local/src
  • docker ps -f "status=exited" shows no record of container ==> container never got instantiated 
  • verified /var/run/docker.sock exists and is mounted to the peer node using 
    --volume /var/run/:/host/var/run/ and 
  • from within the peer we can verify

    root@c54560119c91:/home# ls /host/var/run

    diagnosticsd.sock  docker  docker.pid  docker.sock  linuxkit-containerd  linuxkit-external-logging.sock  rpc.statd.pid rpcbind.lock  rpcbind.sock  service-port-opener  sm-notify.pid

  • the host is a mac machine in case it matters

  • chaincode was previously instantiated when peer was running in dev mode and we were able to submit transactions. now we are switching peer to net mode.

not sure where to go from here.
