Subject Re: Downgrade Cassandra from 2.1.x to 2.0.x
Date Fri, 06 Mar 2015 17:32:45 GMT
Hi Roni,

We had the same problem and had to build a new, separate cluster. We read
from both clusters in the beginning and copied the data in the background
by paging over our data in the old 2.1.3 cluster. This allowed us to make
the downgrade seemless. Just watch out for 2.0.12's bug with nodetool
cleanup and make sure you build the cluster with enough nodes so you don't
need to add another node before version 2.0.13 gets released.
