Enterprise Manager '+ Add Core' button disabled on Sites > Systems page

Issue: When attempting to add another Core to a Site, such as when adding the second of two Cores in a redundant pair System, the + Add Core button is grayed out.

Workaround: None. Currently, the maximum number of Cores that can be registered to your Organization equals the number of System licenses enabled on the Organization, regardless of whether a System is redundant. This will be fixed in a future update. Note that the Subscription Details table on the Organizations page correctly shows the number of connected Systems and does not represent the number of connected Cores when using any Redundant Core systems.

Earliest Reported Version: 9.3, and it affects all versions of the LTS Branch. 

Version Fixed: This issue is under investigation.
