Subject node stuck "leaving" on 1.0.5
Date Mon, 12 Dec 2011 07:02:01 GMT
I have a dead node I need to remove from the cluster so that I can rebalance among the existing
servers (can't replace it for a while).

I used nodetool removetoken and it's been stuck in the "leaving" state for over a day now.
 I've tried a rolling restart, which kicks of some streaming for a while under netstats but
now even that lists nothing going on.

I'm stuck on what to do next to get this node to finally leave so I can move the tokens around.

Only error I see in the system log:
