How to safely change CS700 management interfaces

We have a CS700 array with the 1Gb ETH1/2 ports currently used as management interfaces.  We also have a pair of 10Gb NICs and are using tg1 and tg3 as our data connections.  We want to add tg2 and tg4 as management interfaces and drop ETH1/2 interfaces.  Pretty straight forward on added tg2 and tg4 as management interfaces.  However network traffic has not migrated to either of these.  Is it as simple as unconfiguring ETH1/2 or will that cause some kind of disruption to the management interface / replication traffic?

Thanks

It appears that even though the ETH1 and ETH2 interfaces are unconfigured any network traffic initiated by the Nimble is still sent out via ETH1.  Hey #Nimblesupport why is traffic going out an unconfigured interface?

The default route is not updated and stays with the unconfigured ETH1 interface.
