We are planning to upgrade our Primary Site which has  2 nodes in a cluster to latest version . We will add additional 3rd node to it ,so after upgrade we will have 3 nodes in our primary site . We will be following all steps  as per documentation . Our environment contains around 1800 password as of now . Apart from the steps mentioned in documentation , can I extract all passwords  before the upgrade  ? Just in case any one needs to login to their servers and i can provide login credentials to them.



Release : 3.2
