Subject: unable to start as a service on Ubuntu server

Hello all, 

We installed Cassandra on our development server , which is a fresh Ubuntu server running
only Cassandra. 
We followed all the instructions on this link and when we want to start the server as a service
by issuing either of the command. 

service cassandra start 
/etc/init.d/cassandra start 

it waits for a few seconds, then returns the prompt. 
But the service never starts. 
When we try to start with cassandra -f , it works fine. 

What could be the issue. 
Any help would be appreciated. 

many thanks
