Subject Re: rename a cluster in cassandra 1.2.6
Date Tue, 18 Jun 2013 17:20:11 GMT
Can you expand on the reasoning behind this? I was bitten by this yesterday when
trying to change the cluster name -- I thought I could just change it in the
cassandra.yaml and be done with it but cassandra wouldn't start because of this

What's the process when it's not a test system (mine wasn't)? In order to fix my
issue, I deleted the commit logs, system keyspace directory, restarted the node,
and ran nodetool resetlocalschema and nodetool repair. Is this correct?

Are there any other settings like this that cassandra caches and need to be in
sync for a proper startup?
