Subject Re: auto_bootstrap=false broken?
Date Tue, 04 Aug 2015 12:24:56 GMT
Hello Christian,

You may use the start-up parameter -Dcassandra.join_ring=false if you don't
want the node to join the ring on startup. More about this parameter here:

You can later join the ring via nodetool join command:

auto_bootstrap=false is typically used to bootstrap new datacenters or
clusters, or nodes with data already on it before starting the process.
