Subject Re: Convert single node C* to cluster (rebalancing problem)
Date Thu, 01 Jun 2017 13:31:47 GMT
Did you run "nodetool cleanup" on first node after second was bootstrapped? It should clean
rows not belonging to node after tokens changed.

Cassandra ensure that adding or removing nodes are very easy and that load is balanced between
nodes when a change is made. but it's not working in my case.

I have a single node C* deployment (with 270 GB of data) and want to load balance the data
on multiple nodes, I followed this guide 

`nodetool status` shows 2 nodes but load is not balanced between them

Datacenter: dc1 =============== Status=Up/Down |/ State=Normal/Leaving/Joining/Moving -- Address
Load Tokens Owns (effective) Host ID Rack UN 270.75 GiB 256 48.6% 1a3f6faa-4376-45a8-9c20-11480ae5664c
rack1 UN 414.36 KiB 256 51.4% 66a89fbf-08ba-4b5d-9f10-55d52a199b41 rack1

I also ran 'nodetool repair' on new node but result is same. any pointers would be appreciated

conf file of new node
