Mammoth upgrade hangs on Step 1 verifying the 'oracle' password. Output looks like below and is hung at "INFO: Checking password on node bdanode0x" on one node of the cluster. 

b) On the nodes where completes successfully the script can log into the host  as 'oracle' user with the password provided by the script via the next line which starts with "expect -nocase ...".

c) But on the nodes where the hangs:

i. The script prompts for a password i.e. it can not log in automatically with the password provided by the script. 

ii. And after the password is manually entered, hangs at the next line: "set waitval [wait -i $spawn_id]".

d)  Manual login as 'oracle' user to the host, however, is successful on all nodes.
