The last thing I need is the complication of having the engine hosted on
the cluster. It's way too easy to shoot yourself in the foot that way.

It's definitely possible. I had an issue with my 4.4->4.5 upgrade (always
make a backup first) and wanted to switch my engine from CentOS Stream to
Rocky anyway, so I built a new host and installed 4.5 using my backup from
With 4.3->4.4 this was the only way to upgrade due to the OS version
change. 4.3 requires el7, 4.4 requires el8, and there is no in-place
el7->el8 upgrade (except maybe for very specific versions of RHEL). So
you had to make a backup on 4.3, reinstall your engine host with el8, then
restore the backup on 4.4. Plus a few extra steps if using
the self-hosted engine...
