Remove all existing datanodes and copy that data to new added nodes in the cluster

I thought decommissioning all of them would automatically copy data to commissioned nodes. That did not happen though. I currently have 4 DN's in the cluster. I need to remove all 4 of them add 3 new ones instead. I need to maintain the data ofcourse.

What's the way forward?

Decommision 1 datanode at a time so that the data get replicated to another node and then go for the next. Make sure there is no underreplicated data in namenodeUI  before you decommision another datanode.
