Hello astrachan,

Thanks for the suggestion, this seems to be working.

what my set-up is?
Rpm based omnibus installation on centos 6.8 machine on bare machine
manully downloaded and upgraded through yum update to revision (gitlab-ce-8.9.9)
then migrated to gitlab-ce-9.5.9 in same way
after that migrated gitlab-ce-10.4.0
this seems to be working fine as of now on my test machine

Planning to keep it same for sake of easy upgrade and discarding idea of going with container.
