Subject Re: Restarting servers

You need to wait for the servers to be up again before restarting the 
next one.  nodetool ring on one of the servers you aren't restarting 
will tell you when it is back up.  You can also watch for "Starting up 
server gossip" in the log file to know when it is starting to join the 
cluster again.
