You can -
1. Move the host to maintenance mode.
2. Change the cluster of the hosts to the new one.
3. Running setupNetworks + save network configuration directly on the host
removing the old management network and configuring the new one (with new
vlan and ip).
 Petr, can you please provide the syntax of the command?

* You may first try doing this step via the ui. Make sure you uncheck
the 'Verify
connectivity between Host and Engine' checkbox in the Setup Networks window.
I'm not sure it will work, maybe the engine will block it since you're
trying to touch the nic with the management ip.

4. Change the dns setting to resolve to the new IPs.

You can -
1. remove the host from the original clusters
2. remove all the network from the host using Petr's vdsm tool (
3. change the dns setting to resolve to the new IPs.
4. Add the host to the new cluster.
