Node client: "Error: 14 UNAVAILABLE: Connection dropped" - How to Suppress or Resolve

Simeon MacMillen

I am getting an occasional "Error: 14 UNAVAILABLE: Connection dropped" when calling Fabric chaincode via evaluateTransaction from my Node client.  I haven't figured out the trigger for this error (it seems sporadic), but when it occurs, I am usually able to reset the gateway and then re-run the transaction without issue.

Is it possible to suppress the error output that results from calling contract.evaluateTransaction(...) ?  This would allow me to more gracefully deal with the error in the background.

Alternately (and probably preferably),

Is it possible to prevent this error?
