adding cores to your primary may add cost in terms of # of cores that your organization needs to allocate, however it will not add any costs in terms of Tableau Server licensing as long as you are only running the gateway process on this box.
And the minimum requirements have changed as of Tableau Server 9.x

You will run into this as you do the upgrade, unfortunately.
My first suggestion is to increase the core count on your primary. I'm assuming you're in a virtual environment, because two-core physical servers are a bit uncommon. In a virtual environment, it should be a pretty simple maneuver. Once the install is done, you can reduce the core count again if necessary, though leaving it or increasing it may be beneficial. Two new processes are added to the Primary in v9 - the Cluster Controller and the Coordination Service.
If you're not able to add cores, there *is* a way to do the install and bypass the warning message, but I can't recommend it in good conscience. Reply here if you need that.
Also, upgrade to v9.1.3 as it contains a couple of important bug fixes.
Thanks, everyone. I added the two cores and the test upgrade to v9.1.3 went well.
