Hi all,

   I have been trying to bootstrap a new node into my 7 node 1.2.4 C* cluster with Vnodes RF3 with no luck.  It gets close to completing and then the streaming just stalls with  streaming at 99% from 1 or 2 nodes.  Nodetool netstats shows the items that have yet to stream but the logs on the new node do not show any errors.  I tried shutting down then node, clearing all data/commit logs/caches, and re-boot strapping with no luck.  The nodes that are hanging sending the data only have the error below but that's related to compactions (see below) although it is one of the files that is waiting to be sent.  I tried nodetool scrub on the column family with the missing item but got an error indicating it could not get a hard link.  Any ideas?  We were able to bootstrap one of the new nodes with no issues but this other one has been a real pain.  Note that when the new node is joining the cluster, it does not appear in nodetool status.  Is that expected?

Thanks all, my next step is to try getting a new IP for this machine, my thought being that the cluster doesn't like me continuing to attempt to bootstrap the node repeatedly each time getting a new host id.
