You do not need a restart if you use nodetool refresh
Otherwise a rolling restart will do the trick.

Thanks that's very helpful. I'm assuming there's no requirement to

Renaming a CF is not directly supported.
1) Add the new CF using the CLI or CQL
2) On each node copy the SSTable files and use the new CF
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.
