Subject failed to restore from snapshot
Date Sun, 20 May 2012 15:19:31 GMT
I wanted to test restoring my Cassandra cluster from a snapshot.

I created a new ring (with 3 nodes) same as my environment.
I started recovering one node at a time and failed with the first :)

I didn't create the schema on the new node, but I did create the cluster.
I stopped Cassandra
I copied the content of the snapshot to the data directory under the
I started Cassandra
Nothing happened - it didn't even know about the keyspace

So I created the keyspace and all the CF using cli and restarted
Cassandra again.
Now it knows the schema, but it does not seem to have the data.

What am I doing wrong?

By the way I am running Cassandra 1.0.9 on DataStax AMIs
