Hi @shyamvr_191673,

is this the end of the system log for this one node? I am a bit confused by the old timestamp, it is a timestamp from February 2020: ERROR [ValidationExecutor:27104] 2020-02-17 03:00:11,741

These are errors related to failing repairs, but they don't necessarily indicate that the node is down. When you say it is not coming up, what have you tried?

As Bettina pointed out, the errors you posted are not the cause of Cassandra failing to start on the nodes.

We assume you managed to resolve the issue since we haven't heard back from you in a few weeks since you posted this question. Cheers!
