I fear I may have made an expensive error. I have an account that has more Tezos than I would like to admit. Upon trying to transfer Tezos out of the account like this:
./tezos-client transfer 1 from <account a> to <account b>
I receive a message that says:
Unknown secret key for <account a>
Fortunately, I have copied the secret key, the public key and the hash--or account number in my records. However, ./tezos-client doesn't seem to know the secret key for this account anymore. How can I sign this transaction with ./tezos-client?
I have tried
./tezos-client import secret key <alias> unencrypted:<secret key>
Failed to read a b58check_encoding data (Signature.Secret_key): "<secret key>"
I have also tried 'encrypted' instead of 'unencrypted' and that yields:
Not a Base58Check-encoded encrypted key
