Subject Re: help! seed node needs to be replaced
Date Mon, 11 Apr 2011 21:43:56 GMT
Yes.  This node has repeatedly given problems while reading various sstables.  So I decided
to start with a fresh data dir, relying on the fact that with an RF=3, the data will be able
to be retrieved from the cluster.

Since this is a seed node, I am a little unsure how to proceed.  From everything I've read,
bootstrapping a seed is not a good idea.  One idea I had was to change the IP, bootstrap,
and change the IP back.    But I just tried nodetool move 0 to try, with the hopes that it
might work.

   Hope that was a good idea.
