Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-6021) Creating keyspace fails with cryptic error.
Date Fri, 13 Sep 2013 07:45:51 GMT


Jacob Rhoden commented on CASSANDRA-6021:

Workaround is to use a different syntax. (I am a little confused because I am sure the former
syntax worked on this laptops installation of cassandra).

CREATE KEYSPACE base_test WITH replication = {'class': 'SimpleStrategy', 'replication_factor':
> Creating keyspace fails with cryptic error.

> Creating a keyspace returns a strange and cryptic error. (Java exception falling through
to cqlsh)
>     cqlsh> create keyspace base_test with strategy_options = {replication_factor:1}
and placement_strategy='org.apache.cassandra.locator.SimpleStrategy';
>     Bad Request: Failed parsing statement: [create keyspace base_test with strategy_options
= {replication_factor:1} and placement_strategy='org.apache.cassandra.locator.SimpleStrategy';]
reason: NullPointerException null
> I've tried increasing the logging level but I cant seem to get any more info about it.
If there is other information I can provide that might be useful please let me know.
> Im still learning cassandra so its possible im doing something stupid, but either way,
a null pointer exception is not an ideal error message.
