Environment : linux, cassandra 2.0.4, 3 node, embedded, byte ordered, LCS

 

When I add a node to the existing 3 node cluster I sometimes get the exception ‘Unable to gossip with any seeds ‘ listed below. If I just restart it without any change then mostly it works. Must be some timing issue.

 

The Cassandra at that time is configured using the Cassandra.yaml file

with the auto_bootstrap set true

and the initial_token set to something like : 00f35256, 041e692a, 0562d8b2, 0930274a, 0b16ce96, 0c5b3e1e, 10cac47a, 12b16bc6, 13f5db4e, 186561aa, 1907996e, 1c32b042, 1e19578e ……

 

The two seeds configured in this yaml are 10.164.8.250 and 10.164.8.249 and these are up and running.

The new node to add has ip 10.164.8.93

 

At the time of the exception, I do not get the gossip message ‘Handshaking version with /10.164.8.93’ on the seeds.

If the exception does not occurs, then I do get that gossip message ‘Handshaking version with /10.164.8.93’ on the seed
