Subject Re: Does node add/remove requires all cluster nodes be present?
Date Tue, 01 May 2018 04:01:28 GMT
nodetool decommission streams data from the losing replica, so only that instance has to be
online (and decom should be preferred to removenode)

If that instance is offline, you can use removenode, but you risk violating consistency guarantees

Adding nodes is similar - bootstrap streams from the losing range
