We are currently moving data from a RF=1 to RF=3 cluster by using sstable loader tool. We will of course be running repair on the destination nodes but was wondering how is the following issue resolved using a repair if my understanding is wrong?

sstableloader does in fact stream to all endpoints. That's why it's valuable that it has an --ignores option : if you successfully streamed to 2/3 replicas and 1/3 failed, you can --ignores the 2 which completed.
