I am following along with the instructions in exercise DS210 exercise 01.04, and I am at the point where I have configured the cassandra.yaml file per the exercise, as well as the cassandra-rackdc.properties file, and when I start Cassandra on node 3 (per the exercise) it does not start. The message I get on the screen is the following:
ubuntu@ds210-node3:~$ sudo service dse start * Starting DSE daemon dse DSE daemon starting with only Cassandra enabled (edit /etc/default/dse to enable other features) /etc/init.d/dse: 503: ulimit: error setting limit (Operation not permitted) WARNING: Timed out while waiting for DSE to start. The service may have started though. Please check your logs.
Further, nothing is written to system.log or debug.log so I have no insight into what is happening.
At this point in the exercise, node 1 is up and running (status UN) and I have already run a successful stress test against node 1.
When I shut down node 1 and independently try to start node 3 (attempt at troubleshooting the situation), node 3 starts successfully, but then when I try to start node 1 it fails with the same symptoms, nothing written to system.log or debug.log.
Any recommendations? I am stumped and also new to Datastax Cassandra.
