I have a 5th node that want to add to my cluster and I am looking for steps properly add.

I currently have 4 nodes with storage encryption enabled.

I assume I steps are to diable the storage encryption, add the 5th node, configure the encryption services on the 5th node and corresponding certificates then enable the storage encryption through prism.

Can anyone confirm or give me the steps? I dont want to have to belly up 5K to Nutanix for pro services if this is a relatively easy process.

Thanks in advance to anyone that can help.
Dave
