I told you what to do already, sorry if it was unclear :

" just nodetool drain (although this doesn't actually reliably work in 1.1
era... [1]) before stopping the node. "

Honestly not sure why the Datastax instructions tell you to delete the
commitlog instead of using nodetool drain. I've added them (docs@ ...) to a
bcc: here for their information.
