This seems to be a known issue related to https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CASSANDRA-2818 e.g. https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CASSANDRA-2768

There was some discussion on the IRC list today, driftx said the simple fix was a full cluster restart. Or perhaps a rolling restart with the 2818 patch applied may work. 

Starting with "Dcassandra.load_ring_state=false" causes the node to rediscover the ring which may help (just a guess really). But if there is bad node start been passed around in gossip it will just get the bad state again.  

Anyone else ?

Hi all,

I have upgraded all my cluster to 0.8.1. Today one of the disks in one
of the nodes died. After replacing the disk I tried running repair, but
this message appears:
