I created 3 node cluster as required for DSE 201 exercises. When working on "Hinted Handoff" exercise, I followed the instructions:
1. My data was on node 2 and 3, so I stopped both of these and connected to cqlsh of Node 1.
2 With consistency level ONE, read query failed on Node 1 as expected and it also failed on Node 3 (when node 1 and 2 were down) wih NoHostAvailableException
3. But read query succeeded on Node 2 with consistency level ONE (even when node 1 and 3 were down) - Why ???
Please clarify my doubt.
