Why does the default superuser password on a cass-operator node stop working?

I'm a running cassandra in kuberentes and I have used the cassandra operator 1.0 provided by datastax.

Are you aware of any issue about superuser after some time not being to connect using the usual password?

Hi @acucciarre_144605,

it's not a behaviour I would expect. Can you give more details about the connection failure? Are you connecting via cqlsh? Are the pods fully up and running?

Hi @acucciarre_144605, are the security keyspaces data fully repaired and having enough replication? Could you provide the commands and the stack trace (from the console as well as from the logs files) here that could help identify the problem?

This isn't normal behaviour for nodes built with the cass-operator so I suspect that the STS ran into some problems and got terminated.

You should check the pods to see if they got replaced. The quickest way to tell is by checking the running time on the pods:

$ kubectl -n cass-operator get pods

Otherwise, confirm that the secret you have is valid and correct. Cheers!
