Docker geth : Cannot unlock account : "Fatal: Failed to unlock account" #2138
Hello Ethereum team!
I got issues to unlock account in Docker, impossible via --unlock in cmd or js (only possible while sending a transaction).
DATA container (for blockchain, wallet, password)
Run geth while unlocking wallet: I tried all these commands with no luck:
Fatal: Failed to unlock account: 0xb16711ee4a2b5b229729bd33d73c39c7527acb11
With js, unlocking doesn't work too:
But it is working when you send a transaction, it ask you to unlock, for some reason it accepts the password here...
I can't see another option to try, hopefully I am missing something obvious.
Thank you for your help!! And good week! :-)
