Subject Inability to drop column families
Date Tue, 17 Jul 2012 21:54:35 GMT
Looking for ideas on how to diagnose this issue.  I have installed v1.1.2 on
a two-node cluster (the data files loaded, incidentally, were from an
earlier v1.1.1 2-node setup).  While initially I recall being able to
create/drop column families, I am no longer able to.  

Let's say I have column family MyFamily in MyKeyspace.  Using cassandra-cli,
I issue:
[default@unknown] use MyKeyspace;
Authenticated to keyspace: MyKeyspace
[default@galaxy_lookups] drop column family MyFamily;
Waiting for schema agreement...
... schemas agree across the cluster

However, the column family is still there, either way using "describe" from
within cassandra-cli, or through nodetool cfstats.  Moreover, there are no
errors in the Cassandra logs.

Ideas on what to try next? Thanks!
