thanks. andrewB

I succeeded in-place EV upgrade. but we have a problem.

We need to join an existing site to a new server.

I've tried and failed to add with the following message.

is it impossible?

exsting site - 9.0.4  ( several servers 10.0.4)

new server - 10.0.4

"Failed to read the Sites for organization 'TestEV1'"

except index and dvs verification rest should not be problem at all.. All is well if everything is planned correctly.

Better you may consider simulating in your lab (if possible)

Index Rebuilding and storage verification could take time
