`ipa-server-upgrade` hangs after updating RHEL 7.4 to 7.5

Solution In Progress - Updated -


IPA upgrade stalls at:

[root@ipaserver ~]# ipa-server-upgrade
Upgrading IPA:. Estimated time: 1 minute 30 seconds
  [1/8]: saving configuration
  [2/8]: disabling listeners
  [3/8]: enabling DS global lock
  [4/8]: starting directory server
  [5/8]: updating schema
  [6/8]: upgrading server

And /var/log/ ipaupgrade.log shows the IPA upgrade process stopping at indexing and never finishing:

[root@ipaserver ~]# tail -f ipaupgrade.log
