HA Cluster user configuration restore

Two FortiMail VMs, configured as a config-only HA cluster and currently running 6.0.5.
Currently these devices use a NFS share as remote storage - that server is being retired and we're not going to be using remote storage with the FortiMails any longer.  
I understand the process for removing the remote storage, and am OK with losing the existing user quarantines.  I do need, however, to capture the user block/safe list configurations, and I understand I can back these up through the system maintenance tab.
My question is about restoring those block/safe lists after I have removed the remote storage.  Can I restore the user configurations to just the config-master, with the expectation that the lists will synchronize to the config-slave device, or do I need to:
  1. break the HA config and backup each device separately
  2. remove the remote storage from both devices
  3. restore the configuration to each device individually
  4. reestablish the config-only HA pair
Thanks for your help!

    quoting admin guide, table 26 HA settings not synchronized for config-only mode:
    "• Starting from 5.4.0 release, all system, domain, and user level block/safe lists are synchronized."
