Not sure what could be the reason, but the issue is obvious: directory /var/lib/cassandra/hints
is missing or cassandra user doesn't have enough permissions on it.

Subject: Hints folder missing in Cassandra

Hello All,

I am using Cassandra 3.10. I have 3-node cluster (say node0, node1, node2).

I have been using nodetool utility to monitor the cluster.

nodetool status – indicates all nodes are up and in normal state

nodetool ring – indicates all nodes are up

Running into following issue:

WARN  [HintsWriteExecutor:1] 2018-02-05 06:57:09,607 - open(/var/lib/cassandra/hints,
O_RDONLY) failed, errno (2).

For some reason, the hints folder on node1 is missing. Not sure how it got deleted. One node
in the cluster always seems to run into this issue.

The other two nodes node0 and node2 do not have this issue, and the hints folder is present.

The debug logs do not seem to indicate the root cause.

Please let me know how to debug this further to understand the root cause.
