I installed DSE 4.0 and started the datastax agent and set up a 12-node cluster.
When I look in the opscenter console I see 0 nodes connected.
I see this exception in the agent log:

I tried changing the log level to ALL but it didn't add log messages to this snippet.

OpsCenter 4.1.2 was released a few hours ago and should fix this. If it doesn't, try adding cassandra_conf: /path/to/cassandra.yaml in the agent's address.yaml and restart – mbulman Apr 11 '14 at 1:57
