Cool guys.. and thanks. I'll give this a shot. And I do understand it's a cosmetic issue. It's just an OCD little detail I want to correct before my cluster starts growing more nodes. :)

Check there (unless you changed you data directories in your cassandra.yaml)

And thanks for your reply! Well so far it's just a single node. So I wouldn't think this should be so complicated. But one day hopefully from this node a cluster will grow, but that we shall have to wait and see.

At any rate, at /var/log/cassandra I don't see a directory called system. All I see is a system log (a bunch of them rotated, I won't show the rotated logs:

[root@beta:~] #ls -l /var/log/cassandra/system.log
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 12003809 Jan  9 22:29 /var/log/cassandra/system.log

The only LocationInfo files I see pertaining to cassandra are here:

[root@beta:~] #locate LocationInfo | grep -i  -v -e backup -e nagios

Not sure what the effect of removing these files would be, but would doing so  allow me to change my cluster name while retaining my keyspace schema?
