Change of upgrade order in EV 10.0.4 (for environments with CA or DA)?

This issue has been solved. See solution.
I'm preparing to upgrade from Enterprise Vault 10.0.3 to 10.0.4 and, while reviewing the upgrade instructions, I came across the following:
You must upgrade the Accelerator product before you upgrade Enterprise Vault.
Perform the upgrades in the following order:
■ Upgrade the Accelerator product.
■ Then upgrade Enterprise Vault on the Accelerator server.
■ Finally, upgrade Enterprise Vault on the Enterprise Vault server.
Is this actually correct? The first two listed steps sounds like the exact opposite of what past instruction has been. This is the first time these instructions have appeared in the Upgrade_Instructions.PDF (I looked back at each version to 10.0).
I assume that, as long as I have the EV Accelerator Manager Service stopped on both DA and CA servers and am prepared for the downtime, I can do what I normally do, which is:
- Upgrade EV server
- Verify EV is working correctly
- Upgrade EV files on CA/DA servers
- Upgrade CA/DA product
I just want to make sure I'm not missing some major change behind the scenes that will end up borking everything if I do and I normally do. Any reason I would want to avoid my normal path? Thanks!
