When attempting to perform an upgrade a hardware appliance to version 7.0.1, an insufficient swap space error occurs and the installation aborts:
Pre-Requisites Test(s) failed with the following message(s) :
Current swap size of "16777212 KB" is less then needed minimum value of "16777216 KB"
The installer checks for swap space but incorrectly fails to automatically increase it as necessary.
This issue will be fixed in version 7.0.2.
Remove or comment out the checkSwapSpace function call in installer file /tmp/aveksa/staging/InspectSystem.sh and re-run the installer. The existing swap space will allow the install to complete successfully.
To effectively remove the checkSwapSpace execution, comment out the lines (code near line 1107) by preceding each line with #, as shown here:
#if [ $REMOTE_ORACLE = N ]; then
# Purpose : check if the system has the swap space matching RAM up to 16GB
# runtest checkSwapSpace
