Subject Re: rename column family
Date Mon, 02 Jan 2012 10:07:53 GMT
Renaming a CF is not directly supported. 

You can:
1) Add the new CF using the CLI or CQL
2) On each node copy the SSTable files and use the new CF name. 
3) Drop the old CF using the CLI or CQL
4) The Drop CF command will create a snapshot, you may want to delete this. 

Hope that helps.
