    I succeed to upload the test utility file 

    When I try to upload the upgrade file on the GUI  and it stack on the end (110MM from 111MB) and not succeed to upload the file 

    I run MD5 on the file and the file is OK

    if you upload test file, run test only option and upload software package via scp. I'm using pscp it's easily uploads 800MB-ish file within couple of seconds and start upgrade with "applysoftware -file uploadedfilename" command.

    I have experienced similar problems.
    Even uploading the upgrade file through scp using CLI, I have also had problems with the new version that does not show the file in the repository in the GUI, as if it were not there.
    Finally there seems to be some problem with the length of the upgrade file name. Change it to something shorter, like "UPG_8.6.0.2" for example and it will work.

    For greater security, run a cleardumps command before uploading the upgrade and test files again.
    "cleardumps -prefix /home/admin/update" or "cleardumps -prefix /home/admin/upgrade"

    Pedro,  Your suggestion made more sense than the original.  I was having the same issue with the upload to getting stuck.  I renamed the file along with the upgrade test to short and easy and it worked.   Great suggestion.  I've seen this before with other appliances from IBM.
