I would like to know is there a way around this step? We are going from 10.2.2 to 10.7.1. It is going to add a lot more hassle trying to minimize the downtime for the Production. We have to take things out, do the upgrade and put them back in hopefully as it was before without issues. If we could just do the upgrade without this step we can save time and not risk issues when things are put back. THANK YOU ALL!
