AutoSys 12.0 upgrade script fails with a "java/lang/OutOfMemoryError" during the EEM validation steps.
mRelease : 12.0
Component : AutoSys Workload Automation
This issue can occur where the EEM server has a very large number of policies. The InstallAnywhere installer runs out of Memory Heap during validation.
By default it runs with 134m of Max Memory Heap.
The installer uses InstallAnywhere which provides the option to set Java Max Memory on the command line when executing the installer.
./install.bin -jvmxmx 250m
Set this is to a higher value to avoid the OutOfMemory error.
Broadcom reproduced the issue internally with 5000+ policies in EEM.
It was sufficient to set the java max memory to 200m in that test case to overcome the out of memory error.
