The Thrift RPC service and native transport server was bound to the rpc_address. It is set to the interface or IP address that clients connect to. Thrift was deprecated in Apache Cassandra 2.2 (CASSANDRA-9319) and completed removed in Cassandra 4.0 (CASSANDRA-11115).

In anticipation of the full removal of Thrift, rpc_address was deprecated in DSE 6.0 and replaced with native_transport_address (DB-1130). The list of deprecated properties are:

Deprecated property New from DSE 6.0
rpc_address
native_transport_address
rpc_interface
native_transport_interface
rpc_interface_prefer_ipv6
native_transport_interface_prefer_ipv6
rpc_port
native_transport_port
broadcast_rpc_address
native_transport_broadcast_address
rpc_keepalive
native_transport_keepalive

It's important to note that the properties have not been replaced in open-source Apache Cassandra yet but it is expected that OSS C* will catch up soon (CASSANDRA-11107).

Since you are configuring DSE 6.8.0, use the new property names. Cheers!
