Resolution

You can review the system requirements below:
https://techdocs.broadcom.com/us/en/ca-enterprise-software/devops/devtest-solutions/10-6/installing/preinstallation/system-requirements.html

I would also suggest you review the Server components and make sure the number of systems you have is enough.
it is not recommended to run all components on a single server.
https://techdocs.broadcom.com/us/en/ca-enterprise-software/devops/devtest-solutions/10-6/installing/preinstallation/devtest-server-components.html

Generally speaking, a minimum of 3 servers is suggested for a production environment.
