    [FAB-6938] Cannot create CouchDB database for channel · c0b6e8cd
    Chris Elder authored
    In there was a post about an error:
    when i am running join peer request some times it's giving
    Error:file_exists, Status Code:412, Reason:The database could
    not be created, the file already exists
    I believe this can happen if peer is retrying a create database
    request against CouchDB.  A prior attempt to create database came
    back as a timeout failure to peer, but in the meantime the database
    got created in CouchDB.  The next retry would get the error above.
    This scenario should be handled in peer code.
