Environment

Release : 6.4.2

Resolution

We found the tar file in the Upgrade Directory\Install folder had some large files in the jboss directory that failed to be unzipped properly.

When looking at the jboss directory within the AAI installation directory, we found several very large dmp files.

 

After deleting those files and running the upgrade again, the upgrade was successful.
