When attempting to run the configuration assistant after doing a software only upgrade of OBIEE 11g, with the admin server and node manager server not running, the upgrade will fail. If you go back and restart the administration server and node manager server and restart the upgrade, the following error may occur in the configuration assistant. The configuration assistant will not run. It will get to the step where you tell it to upgrade domain and put in the administration server and weblogic account information and then hang when hitting next. A similar error to this will appear in the log file:
