What's the best process for removing a data directory from cassandra.yaml? I had to point the yaml to a temporary location to get around a disk space issue. Now that I've got disk space under control, I want to remove the temporary data dir from the yaml (I have two other data dirs in there that will stay).
1) Do I shutdown cassandra and copy/move all the files in that dir to one of the other data dirs (in the appropriate folder) and remove that entry from the yaml?
2) do I just remove the yaml entry and let the node "heal" itself of its missing data from the other nodes (in effect simulating a drive failure)?
3) something else?
Thanks for any help?
