- Memory: at least 8 GB (default is 2 GB)
- CPU cores: at least 2 cores
Verify you have not run out of disk storage needed for Docker’s “disk image” file (Docker documentation).
If the script errors out before completing, or if there are Docker containers that are not in
Upstate, view the container’s logs with the command
