I have tried restarting all of the nodes with no change.

Created JIRA https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CASSANDRA-4219

Thanks,
Jeff

Would you mind opening a ticket on JIRA
(https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CASSANDRA). This is
definitively a bug and it's be easier to follow up there.

Did you try restarting the node on which you try the create keyspace?

As a follow up, I am running version 1.1 and have tried nodetool repair, cleanup, compact. I can create other keyspaces, but still can't create a keyspace called PlayLog even though it is not listed anywhere.

Hi,

I'm doing testing and wanted to drop a keyspace (with a column family) to re-add it with a different strategy. So I ran in cqlsh:

DROP KEYSPACE PlayLog;

CREATE KEYSPACE PlayLog WITH strategy_class = 'SimpleStrategy'
 AND strategy_options:replication_factor = 2;

And everything seemed to be fine. I ran some inserts, which also seemed to go fine, but then selecting them gave me:

cqlsh:PlayLog> select count(*) from playlog;
TSocket read 0 bytes

I wasn't sure what was wrong, so I tried dropping and creating again, and now when I try to create I get:

cqlsh> CREATE KEYSPACE PlayLog WITH strategy_class = 'SimpleStrategy'
  ...   AND strategy_options:replication_factor = 2;
TSocket read 0 bytes

And the keyspace doesn't get created. In the log it shows:

Any ideas how I can recover from this?
