You can check the schema using cassandra-cli, run "describe cluster" it will tell you how many
schemas are defined. 

I think the best approach when you discover bad schemas is to drain then stop the affected
node, remove the Location, Migrations and Schema files in the System data directory, restart
and let gossip tell the node whats new. Note this will also remove the nodes initial token,
which will be read again from the config file. 

I've cannot remember hearing about a better solution.   

The errors are probably

Hope that helps.
