OK, turns out the sky was not falling :)

driftx helped me on IRC, we added the node tokens to the yaml file then deleted the entire system directory, restarted and it worked. 

Guess I need to go back and read http://www.riptano.com/blog/live-schema-updates-cassandra-07 to understand schema propagation. 

Thanks

This one seems serious, schema migration is failing. I'm dead in the water here, so any quick ideas appreciated. 

Have done an import schema on one node, and also tried system_add_keyspace on the same node It's showing the Keyspace1 and my keyspace. But am getting these errors on the other nodes...

And they are not showing the keyspace in JMX. So things are way out of wack.

is it correct to see avro in the call stack ?
