Um, no. That last statement is incorrect. OpenSRF cannot do SCRAM, but
SCRAM is now the default with ejabberd settings.  You have to change the
password back to plain text with all versions of OpenSRF.

You can always just reinstall OpenSRF and Evergreen on top of an
existing installation. That is how upgrades are typically done.

I would also recommend using a virtual machine or a dedicated server for
testing. I would also recommend using your backup server strictly for
backups and not for any other purpose. I understand that budgets are
likely constrained, but you can test Evergreen on a rather minimal
hardware configuration. I typically use 4GB of RAM and 40GB of disk for
my test VMs where the database runs on another server, or if I am using
the test dataset.
