Best practices for changing ArcGIS Server Directories

I have to change the config-store and server directories location for my 2-node ArcGIS Server cluster (10.4).  Is there any preferred methodology other than logging into manager and editing the config-store and directories section directly?  


For instance, chaning the directories before the config-store, or vice versa.  Or pre-copying the physical folders to the new location before changing the directory location in server manager.  Or stopping all services before editing the directory locations.  Or anything really that might make the process faster or more stable.  


All I know to do is edit the locations in Manager and once everything is done, copying cached tiles directly, but if there are other best practices I'd love to know them.
