Step 5: Create a Peer Node in Your Membership

Now that you are enrolled as an administrator for your member, you can use your client to create a peer node. Your member's peer nodes interact with other members' peer nodes on the blockchain to query and update the ledger, and store a local copy of the ledger.

Wait a minute or two for the administrative permissions from previous steps to propagate, and then use one of the following procedures to create a peer node.

  1. Open the Managed Blockchain console at https://console.aws.amazon.com/managedblockchain/.

  2. Choose Networks, select the network from the list, and then choose View details.

  3. Select a Member from the list, and then choose Create peer node.

  4. Choose configuration parameters for your peer node according to the previous guidelines, and then choose Create peer node.

  • Use the create-node command, as shown in the following example. Replace the value of --network-id, --member-id, and AvailabilityZone as appropriate.

    [ec2-user@ip-192-0-2-17 ~]$ aws managedblockchain create-node \ --node-configuration '{"InstanceType":"bc.t3.small","AvailabilityZone":"us-east-1a"}' \ --network-id n-MWY63ZJZU5HGNCMBQER7IN6OIU \ --member-id m-K46ICRRXJRCGRNNS4ES4XUUS5A

    The command returns output that includes the peer node's NodeID, as shown in the following example:

    { "NodeId": "nd-6EAJ5VA43JGGNPXOUZP7Y47E4Y" }
