Could you please provide us some stack trace here. Indeed multiple reasons could make that command failed and unfortunately if the verify command did not pass there are little chance than the internode communications could work using it.

@aravinth_chakravarthyr_173918 It looks like you're having issues with generating self-signed certificates. Since this is not a DSE or product issue, a question-and-answer forum isn't the ideal place for us to help you troubleshoot the problem. Please log a DataStax Support ticket so one of our engineers can request an OpsCenter Diagnostics Report and assist you directly. Cheers!
