The default in current configs is to use 256 vnodes per physical node.

I always recommend specifying the full list of tokens in use in the
initial_token in the conf file, as a comma delimited list in the case of
vnodes. It helps in an assortment of operational cases.

Then, once that is done, wipe the data dirs again and use replace_address!
