AFAIK you just fire up the new one and let nature take it's course :)

i.e. you do not need to use -Dcassandra.replace_token. 

Hope that helps.

while trying out cassandra I read about the steps necessary to replace a dead node. In my test cluster I used a setup using num_tokens instead of initial_tokens. How do I replace a dead node in this scenario?
