Migrate to new fileserver and change domain name at the same time

What is the best practice for migrating to a new fileserver and changing the domain name. Should I use rendom on the existing 2008 R2 DC and then migrate to the new 2016 Fileserver? Or migrate to the new fileserver and then use rendom?

Or should I install AD on the new server as a new domain and then use ADMT to migrate over?

Only about 35 users but wanting to minimize the time spent at each workstation. Any advice would be appreciated.
