Subject auto_bootstrap setting after bootstrapping
Date Tue, 08 Mar 2011 08:35:45 GMT
According to the Wiki/StorageConfiguration page, auto_bootstrap is
described as below:
Set to 'true' to make new [non-seed] nodes automatically migrate the
right data to themselves. (If no InitialToken is specified, they will
pick one such that they will get half the range of the most-loaded
node.) If a node starts up without bootstrapping, it will mark itself
bootstrapped so that you can't subsequently accidently bootstrap a
node with data on it. (You can reset this by wiping your data and
commitlog directories.)

Does it mean "auto_bootstrap" setting affects only at initial boot?
Will Cassandra just ignore this setting at subsequent boot?
