Hi ,

Generally Upgradesstables are only recommended when you plan to move with Major version like
 from 2.0 to 2.1  or from 2.1 to 2.2 etc. Since you are doing minor version upgrade no need
to run upgradesstables utility.

Link by Datastax might be helpful to you :

Thank you!

We are planning to upgrade to 3.0.10 for this issue.

From the NEWS txt file (, it looks
like there is no need for sstableupgrade when we upgrade from 3.0.4 to 3.0.10 (i.e. Just installing
3.0.10 Cassandra would suffice and it will work with the sstables created by 3.0.4 ?)

Could you please confirm (if i'm reading the upgrade instructions correctly)?

No workarounds, your best/only option is to upgrade (plus you get the benefit of loads of
other bug fixes).

Thank you!

Is any work around available for this version?

We have a brand new Cassandra cluster (version 3.0.4) and we set up nodetool repair scheduled
for every day (without any options for repair). As per documentation, incremental repair is
the default in this case.
Should we do a full repair for the very first time on each node once and then leave it to
do incremental repair afterwards?

Problem we are facing:

On a random node, the repair process throws validation failed error, pointing to some other

For Eg. Node A, where the repair is run (without any option), throws below error

Validation failed in /Node B

In Node B when we check the logs, below exception is seen at the same exact time...

java.lang.RuntimeException: Cannot start multiple repair sessions over the same sstables
        at org.apache.cassandra.db.compaction.CompactionManager.doValidationCompaction(
        at org.apache.cassandra.db.compaction.CompactionManager.access$700(
        at org.apache.cassandra.db.compaction.CompactionManager$
        at ~[na:1.8.0_73]
        at java.util.concurrent.ThreadPoolExecutor.runWorker(

Can you please help on how this can be fixed?
