Subject Node fails to start - error in Log ( - Exception encountered during startup)
Date Fri, 23 Feb 2018 11:11:34 GMT
Hi Community,

Can anyone give me some pointers where to look, or start to look for where this issue is coming

On startup I get this in the logs and my service goes into a failed state. Active(exited)

ERROR [main] 2018-02-23 09:56:36,267 - Exception encountered during

Any pointers would be handy as NULL exception is very hard to investigate.

Cassandra 3.0.11, on linux 7.3 (vm)
