This message is caused by the cmengine.exe binary not getting updated on the upgrade, possibility because the user did not restart the system after the upgrade and a pending reboot operation was scheduled. This can be resolved by verifying the file date of the X:\program files (x86)\CA\DSM\bin\cmengine.exe on the scalability server. It is most likely older than the Domain manager's version and you can do the following to correct this:

1. caf stop on Domain manager and scalability server

2. copy the cmengine.exe from  X:\program files (x86)\CA\DSM\bin\ to the scalability servers'  X:\program files (x86)\CA\DSM\bin\ directory 

3. restart caf and the problem should be resolved.
