The Automation Folder as generated by the Symantec Management Console policy to deploy the automation folder is created succesfully and contains a newly generated autoinst.log file. After letting the policy for updating the Automation Folder run, there start to appear many more autoinst.log files, such as autoinst1.log, autoinst2.log, etc. There could be literally thousands of files accumulating.
The Automation Folder gets packed with autoinst files.
Turn off the NS Policy to upgrade the Automation Folder. This may help as a workaround.
