Subject Re: about decommissioned node that returns
Date Wed, 21 Dec 2011 00:29:15 GMT
A node will only request data from other nodes on start up if it is bootstrapping. Bootstrapping
happens when there is no system data and the auto_bootstrap: yaml config is set true, normally
nodes only bootstrap once in their life. 

If you bring a node back for whatever reason you will want too run repair, see also
