    Dumb question, but did you click the Connect button on the Connect Server tab to log into the server first?

    I actually resolved this by deleting the old dbs, letting the install process create the new dbs and then restoring copies of them over the new.  It was ridiculous but it worked.  It was for a SL 2018 CU3 install.
