If you don't use replace_token, this won't work at all. You'll get
"attempt to bootstrap node into range of live node" type error,
because the old ip will still own the token.

If you do use replace_token, there have been historical cases where
you get (non-service-impacting) ghost node state.

if we can change the ip since we are bringing the new node up in a new rac that has a 10Gb

replace_token is your friend. note however that replace_token is
effectively a bootstrap, so you will end up with duplicate/extra data.
