Paste the error you get.
AIM>ALK - email@example.com
YAHOO - rcoli.palominob
SKYPE - rcoli_palominodb
The name of the keyspace is DA.
On tryinh to create the keyspace it is giving an exception.
I am getting a Ttransport exception for creating the keyspace.
Previous keyspace 'DA" that was created still exists. Because when i checked the folders,the folder with name 'DA' still exists but i cannot access it.
