Subject Re: Problems with node rejoining cluster

Are you move the node to a new machine or re-installing on the same machine ?

If it's the former then:
*  shut it down cleanly
* copy all the data and config
* update the yaml with the new IP for list_address, rpc_address and seed_list 
* restart the node

The error you got says that the schema was not replicated. Check that the node is part of
cluster and check for a split schema using cassandra-cli (FAQ on the wiki has help for split
