The nodetool disablethrift command disables thrift on a node preventing the node from acting as a coordinator. The node can still be a replica for a different coordinator and data read at consistency level ONE could be stale. To cause a node to ignore read requests from other coordinators, nodetool disablegossip would also need to be run. However, if both commands are run, the node will not perform repairs, and the node will continue to store stale data. If the goal is to repair the node, set the read operations to a consistency level of QUORUM or higher while you run repair. An alternative approach is to delete the node's data and restart the Cassandra process.
