Best way to upgrade MB/CPU

My present unraid server has been running for over a decade, maybe longer.  I did do a MB/CPU swap very early on, maybe with a half dozen disks or less attached.

 

Over the years it has grown into quite a monster, and there are enormous amounts of data spanning 20+ disks. 

 

I want to minimize the risk involved with upgrading MB/CPU again.  I will also be converting some isolated mechanical disks to SSDs. 

 

I am open to suggestions, however, my plan is currently:

 

- Back up flash drive

- Back up docker.img

- Screen shot disk assignments

- Screen shot docker images config pages

 

At that point I will shutdown the server, take it apart while giving it a really deep clean, swap in the new MB and then fire it up for testing.

 

What best practices am I missing?

 

Thanks.
