Subject Re: Adding datacenter and data verification

Hello Pradeep,

It looks good to me and it's a cool runbook for you to follow and for
others to reuse.

Nodes seeing each other from the distinct rack is not related to seeds.
It's indeed recommended to use seeds from all the datacenter (a couple or
3). I guess it's to increase availability on seeds node and/or maybe to
make sure local seeds are available.

You can perfectly (and even have to) add your second datacenter nodes using
seeds from the first data center. A bootstrapping node should never be in
the list of seeds unless it's the first node of the cluster. Add nodes,
then make them seeds.
