Subject Re: Rebuild failing when adding new datacenter (3.0.8)
Date Thu, 22 Sep 2016 15:00:59 GMT
It could be a bug.

Yet I am not very aware of this system_distributed keyspace, but from what
I see, it is using a simple strategy:

root@tlp-cassandra-2:~# echo "DESCRIBE KEYSPACE system_distributed;" |
cqlsh $(hostname -I | awk '{print $1}')

CREATE KEYSPACE system_distributed WITH replication = {'class':
'SimpleStrategy', 'replication_factor': '3'}  AND durable_writes = true;

Let's first check some stuff. Could you share the output of:

   - echo "DESCRIBE KEYSPACE system_distributed;" | cqlsh
   - nodetool status
   - nodetool status system_distributed
   - Let us know about the snitch you are using and the corresponding

I am trying to make sure the command you used is expected to work, given
your setup.

My guess is this you might need to alter this keyspace accordingly to your
cluster setup.

Just guessing, hope that helps.
