Cause

Agent upgrade failed due to not enough space on the system /tmp directory during the upgrade process.

Environment

Component : CA Workload Automation System Agent

Resolution

Set IATEMPDIR environment variable for the agent installation program to use during the agent upgrade process. For example;

IATEMPDIR=/opt/CAWA/temp_dir
export IATEMPDIR

where, /opt/CAWA/temp_dir overrides the /tmp directory.
