The following similar error might be logged in the VWUpgrade_system.log file:

The above problem occurs because Process Engine requires a minimum of 2 minutes between Phase 1 and Phase 3 of the upgrade process. If Phase 1 and 2 of the upgrade process completes in under 2 minutes, the error occurs. This restriction will be removed in and later.

If you experience this problem, wait at least 2 minutes before attempting phase 3 of the upgrade. To run this phase manually, you can enter the following command at the prompt:
/opt/IBM/FileNet/ProcessEngine/vwupgrade <virtual server name> -U opt/IBM/FileNet/ProcessEngine/data/
