Subject Re: list all nodes as seeds (excluding self)
Date Tue, 10 Dec 2013 04:54:39 GMT
What is the problem to put all nodes on the seed list without any exclusion.
Constant list is the simplest solution.
You should write it once in cassandra.yaml, tar with everything you need
(cassandra, jdk) and copy as many as number of your nodes on the list.

Really 1 thing you should generate is rpc address and listen address.

I use self extracting bash archives
cat <<EOF
listen_address: $HOSTNAME
