I am practising the Build your first network tutorial. When I run ./ up, I get the following error:

Error: error getting endorser client chaincode: endorser client failed to connect to failed to create new connection context deadline exceeded.

How to solve this?

Try remove previous docker containers(have mentioned the command below) and then restart the network.

$ docker rm -f $(docker ps -aq) && docker rmi -f $(docker images | grep dev | awk '{print $3}') && docker volume prune

Hi @Kiran. That error got resolved. Now I am getting some binaries related error.

Try re-installing platform-specific binaries. Under the fabric-samples, run the following command:

$ curl -sSL | bash -s 1.2.0

It seems like them are old configuration existing which is conflicting with your command. First run  ./ down and then bring you network up using  ./ up. This should help.

I was facing the same issue. I tried many solutions but it didn't work. What finally worked for me is updating docker. I executed the below command and restarted the network and the error was solved. 

$ sudo apt-get install docker-engine

Updating docker didn't work for me. Any other solutions?
I think the changes I made while trying other solutions also contributed to solving the problem along with updating docker. It was a long time ago, so I don't remember. I'll post once I remember what I had tried.

Okay, so I was trying some solutions and found out the problem was with the peer.listenAdress. Setting it to the right address solved the problem. 

This wasn't what I tried but if it worked for you, could work for others too. I think you should post this as an answer.

Check for the peer.listenAdress in your configuration files. I was getting this error because I had set a wrong address and after I set the right address, the error was solved.
