You don't need to rebuild your cluster from scratch. Just, you got to
know that instances cannot change availability zone, unless you really
go deep into the nova database (and change the nova SPEC there).

I'm not sure for existing volumes.

Unless I'm mistaking, there's no notion of AZ for images.

FYI, the nova availability zones are controlled through the compute
aggregate API. The cinder one from cinder.conf in each volume nodes.
