Issue

When attempting to expand a set of nodes, except non-storage node that exhibits 'Complete', Grid Management Interface (GMI) shows the storage nodes as:
'Waiting for Cassandra nodes to join the cluster'
'Starting Cassandra. Error: Failed to start. Retrying'
'Waiting to Start Services'


The node that exhibits 'Starting Cassandra. Error: Failed to start. Retrying' in /var/local/log/cassandra/system.log shows :

ERROR [main] 2018-08-31 10:40:14,250 CassandraDaemon.java (line 678) Exception encountered during startup
java.lang.RuntimeException: A node with address localhost-grid/<IP_Address> already exists, cancelling join. Use cassandra.replace_address if you want to replace this node.
