Issue

  • When migrating from an older OTS cluster to a new one to resolve an issue such as disk mismatch issue, a new issue arises when attempting to convert from the new cluster's evaluation license to the old cluster's Capacity Tier license.
  • During this attempt, Deploy shows the evaluation license tied to the individual OTS cluster nodes but will show as assigned to the cluster itself.
