@adityajain22_141041 Unless you're seeing dropped mutations or hints getting handed off to DC2, nodes in it should be in sync with DC1.

As a side note, we don't recommend the approach you're using for backups. You'll find that restoring data to DC1 from backups of DC2 will be a lot more difficult than if you were backing up DC1 directly. It's something you should consider and review. Cheers!
