Check the JMX port listed in /etc/cassandra/ 

If it's not default you can pass it to nodetool using the --jmx-port option.

I migrated my test environment from 1.2.0 to 1.2.1 (DataStax Community) and nodetool  can not communicate to 7199, even if it is listening. in one node I get  
Failed to connect to 'cassandra4:7199': Connection refused

in another node I get timeout.

Did I do anything wrong, when upgrading?

Thanks In advance
