Root Cause

Root cause of the problem lies in Websphere plugin configuration causing a refresh on timeout before Pega finishes its backend processing.


ServerIOTimeout parameter is set to a value of 60 on Websphere plugin.
 As a result,  timeout errors occur while running post upgrade tools.
Change the IOServerOutput=1800 to resolve the issue.
