Subject HintedHandoff

Hi -I had a question on  hinted-handoff.  We have 2 DCs configured with overall RF = 2 (DC1:1,
DC2:1) and 4 nodes in each DC (total - 8 nodes across 2  DCs)

Now we do a write with CL = ONE and Hinted Handoff enabled.

*        If node 'X ' in DC1 which is a 'replica' node is down and a write comes with CL =1
to DC1, the co-ordinator node will write the hint and also the data will be written to the
other 'replica' node in DC2 ? Is this correct ?

*        If yes, then when we try to do a 'read' of this data with CL = 'local_quorum' from
DC1, it will fail (since the data was written as a hint) and we will need to read it from
the other DC ?
