The cluster was running after initial installation/cfg. I stopped both nodes to make changes to the cassandra.yaml (e.g. cluster_name, endpoint_snitch). Per the instructions, i did a rm -rf /var/lib/cassandra/* to purge the existing data. Now the seed node won't start. From /var/log/cassandra/cassandra.log

I reverted back to the last known good version of cassandra.yaml and the seed node still won't start. fwiw, there is nothing in /var/lib/cassandra/*, which is probably ok, since the node did not fully start.
What daemon did not start?
Do i just need to remove/reinstall using yum?
