You could always set hbase.online.schema.update.enable to true on your
master, restart it (but not the cluster), and you could do what you
are describing... but it's a risky feature to use before 0.96.0.
Did you also set hbase.replication to true? If not, you'll have to do
it on the region servers and the master via a rolling restart.
