Technically this should be possible, however your server config will still miss the configuration (itsm plugins, slm processes).
You will need to adapt the config files on the new node (armonitor.conf, pluginsvr_config.xml).
I suggest to open a case with BMC if you haven't done that already.
IMHO the 18.05 installer should be able to handle this situation.
Out of curiosity: Do you have pending binary payload for ITSM/etc for the new server in deployment console?

I did get an answer from BMC:
open 'SHARE:Application_Properties' form on primary AR Server
2. search with below 'Application IDs' one by one,

3. modify the 'Property Value' from 9.1.06 to "9.1.05" for 'Version' record of each application above
4. clear the "temp" directory on secondary Server and rerun ITSM 1805 installer
5. After all the secondary servers are done with successful ITSM installation these entries can be manually reverted to '9.1.06'.
As for manually copying the binaries, this is not tested / certified method.
Thank you for sharing the information! :-)
Did you also get the information on how the 18.08 ITSM binaries get deployed on the new box? Do you have to redeploy the package(s)?
Mark Walters : I haven't seen anything regrading this issue on the doc page you linked?
After downgrading the version I was then able to run the 18.05 installer from EPD.
Andreas - the docs detail either cloning an existing system and changing the server name references or doing a full install against a new db and then re-configuring to point at the existing db. In both of these cases the 1808 binaries are already present.
Andy Rogers: Yes, but on existing system you have the 18.08 itsm binaries deployed and on new system you have the 18.05 ones after installation. So I assume somehow you need to run ITSM binary deployment on the new system again?
Mark Walters : Thanks for clarification, I thought the page contained something on the d2p issue and therefor I was confused.
