ION_Network database doesn’t upgrade throwing an “Insufficient Disk Space” error

Issue:

Product Line:

1. There is indeed insufficient disk space on the drives where the ION_Network database and tempdb is located
2.  The "Utilities.SQLServer.dll" file is not located in the Power Monitoring Expert/system/bin folder as outlined in the side-by-side upgrade procedure outlined in FA210482.
3.  There is an 'extra' SchedulerTick table associated with a schema called ION that was failing the upgrade right at the beginning.

Resolution:
To resolve the causes perform the following resolutions respectively.
1. Increase the amount of available space on the drives where the ION_Network and tempdb databases are located.
2. Transfer the "Utilities.SQLServer.dll" file attached in FA210482 to the Power Monitoring Expert/system/bin folder.
3. Run this SQL command on the ION_Network database in SQL Server Management Studio:
DROP TABLE [ION_Network].[dbo].[SchedulerTick]
