How to clone MapR clusters between EBS regions?

I need to create a clone of a MapR cluster that is currently running in the us-east-1 region. The copy needs to run in us-west-2 region. The cluster instance include one extra EBS volume attached to each, serving as the MapFS disk device.

So I think the trick here is moving the extra EBS volumes along with the instance AMIs.  Based on [this guidance][1], it looks like you can move multiple EBS volumes with an AMI as long as they are mounted by the OS on a path that's not excluded by AMI creation.

Am i in for a load of hassle here?  Is it easier to just create another cluster from scratch in the target region?
