As of 1.2.x, this information is now kept in a different place.

It is now kept in a column called "cluster_name" in a row with key "local"
in a CF called "local" in the keyspace "system".

You have two options :

1) change this key on all nodes
2) do a rolling restart
3) realize you will have two partial clusters until you complete your
rolling restart, with attendant consequences

This should work because the cluster name check only occurs at node start

... or you can ...

1) stop all nodes
2) move the system keyspace aside entirely
3) start nodes in such a way that your cluster re-coalesces (start seeds
first, etc.)
4) reload your schema

The latter is probably what I'd do. If you do either, please respond on
thread and let us know your results.

PS - Prompted by this thread and my dissatisfaction with either of the
above workarounds, I have created the following feature request : : -D option to change
cluster name
