The following docker-compose.yml is used to start an Ethereum geth node, which needs to connect to a bootnode in order to access a private Ethereum network.

version: '2' 

    geth:

    image: ethereum/client-go:latest

    volumes:

        - ./node:/root/.ethereum

        - ./files/genesis.json:/root/genesis.json:ro

    ports:

        - "30303:30303"

        - "30303:30303/udp"

        - 8543:8545

    command: --rpc --rpcaddr 0.0.0.0 --networkid 13377331 --bootnodes="enode://692b8eda368ffc427fc1a047850557536a0ef0bfa3b66f998e03e8b83c3fd8f78[email protected]159.999.999.999:30303" --nodiscover

However, after running docker-compose up, we see that the chain configuration echoed is the default one, and not the config that the bootnode is using

Initialised chain configuration config="{ChainID: 1 Homestead: 1150000 DAO: 1920000 DAOSupport: true EIP150: 2463000 EIP155: 2675000 EIP158: 2675000 Byzantium: 4370000 Constantinople: Engine: ethash}"

Question: Why is geth not connecting to the bootnode and not using the config that the bootnode has in its genesis.json?

docker-compose output:

It seems that you are using default datadir instead of your private datadir initialized with genesis.json. As the result, geth started as a main network node by using default datadir

Initialize your geth datadir with genesis.json. For example:

geth --datadir path/to/custom/data/folder init genesis.json

Start your
geth by using the datadir and networkid. For example:

geth --datadir path/to/custom/data/folder --networkid 13377331
