Issue/Introduction

Error similar to the following is thrown when trying run the command "./nodetool status" after attempting to start Cassandra database for the Cloud Data Protection container.

nodetool:  nodetool: Failed to connect to '127.0.0.1:7199' - SecurityException: 'Authentication failed! Credentials required'.

Resolution

Starting in Cloud Data Protection 4.14.5, Cassandra JMX authentication can be enabled.

Therefore, in order to run any "nodetool" commands, the username and password must also be specified:

./nodetool -u <user_name> -pw <password> status

OR (if using a password file):

./nodetool -u <user_name> -pwf <password_file> status
