After you have upgraded the analytics cluster, reconfigure the Storage Devices Adapter instances to use the svc-vrops-mpsd service account that replaces the service account from the earlier version of this validated design. This version of the validated design introduces a consistent naming convention for service accounts for vRealize Operations Manager. As a result, you reintroduce certain service accounts under new names for compliance with this convention.
