I am currently working on the hinted handoff exercise in DS201. As mentioned in the exercise steps, I have shut downed my nodes 1 & 2. When I try to start cqlsh using node 3 , it is throwing the error " Unable to connect to cqlsh,"Tried connecting to[('127.0.0.1',9042)]. Last error: Connection Refused".
My node details are as below.
2 DCs : east-side, west-side
1 Rack: hakuna-matata
3 Nodes: east-side: 127.0.02; west-side: 127.0.0.1, 127.0.0.3.
I used the nodetool stopdaemon command on 127.0.0.1 and 127.0.0.2.
Following that I tried to invoke CQLSH from Node 3 - 127.0.0.3 but I get the above mentioned error. I also tried to pass the ip address to Cqlsh like $ CQLSH 127.0.0.3 but still no luck. What could be the reason? How to resolve this?
