Subject Re: Question on Hinted Handoff

Thanks, that clarifies why HH did not work, So have to use .7. Is
there .6.7 ? I am using .6.6 now.
I did see the log entry in Node 4, adding a Hint for Node 2 and when
Node 2 came up noticed a log entry in Node 4 that 1 row Handed Off -
so I thought it was working.

About RR - a read in Node 1 or Node 2 indicated a RR (see log entry
above) was happening. But dont think that ever happened. Those entries
keep repeating every time a read in Node 1 and 2 and kept giving old

AES assuming Anti-Entropy - Tried nodetool repair, this also did not
fix the issue.

The only time I saw it being fixed was a read to Node 3 or Node 4
(mostly Node 3 which acted as responsible when Node 2 was down)  and
then 2nd reads to Node 2 started showing the latest data.

Do you think RR and AES should have definitely worked ?
