Subject Re: Increased replication factor not evident in CLI
Date Thu, 12 Jul 2012 22:44:09 GMT
Do multiple nodes say the RF is 2 ? Can you show the output from the CLI ? Do show schema and
show keyspace say the same thing ?

So, it appears that the replication factor might be 4, but it reports as 2. I'm not entirely
sure how to confirm one or the other.
