The documentation says "Optional when storage-conf.xml is provided" (am guessing that should say cassandra.yaml)

If it's not specified the code will get the seed list from the config file, and you should normally be able to hit at least one of those.

Using Cassandra 0.6.5 to load data in  hadoop. The ConfigHelper.setThriftContact()  allows to specify just one host address. Is there a way to specify more than one host address, so that it takes care of that node failure. Eg host1,host2,host3. If host1 fails, host2 will be used to get the ring information.
