Subject Re: Recover lost node from backup or evict/re-add?
Date Wed, 12 Jun 2019 14:01:56 GMT
To avoid violating consistency guarantees, you have to repair the replicas while the lost node
is down

Once you do that it’s typically easiest to bootstrap a replacement (there’s a property
named “replace address first boot” you can google or someone can link) that tells a new
joining host to take over for a failed machine.
