Error when upgrading Connections 5.5 with CCM to CR2

While upgrading FileNet CE Server I got an error

ERROR occurred while installing FileNet applications

org.apache.soap.SOAPException: [SOAPException: faultCode=SOAP-ENV:Client; msg=Read timed out; Read timed out]


Looking at it you can see is a SOAP timeout error.

I edited the file soap.client.props which is in C:\IBM\WebSphere\AppServer\profiles\Dmgr01\properties and changed the value of from 180 (which is the default) to 0 (which means no timeout).

After the change I retried the update and everything worked fine.

Many thanks to Michael Urspringer for the suggestion.
