If the Orion database is deleted or corrupted, all private transaction payloads for the node are lost. You cannot recover a lost database without a backup.
To recover after a failure:
- Start Orion pointing to your database
- Start Hyperledger Besu. As Besu synchronizes to the current world state it processes the privacy marker transactions and requests the private transactions from Orion to execute.
