Warning:EINVAL creating segment of size


I have installed the second SAP system (SOLMAN) on the same Unix-host (Solaris 5.10 sparc) and have problem after stopping of SAP to start the SAP system again.

I get the error from Oralce:

<b>ORA-27102: out of memory

SVR4R Error 22: invalid argument

ORA-27101: shared memory realm does not exist</b>

I have checked the sga_max_size value in the file init<SID>.ora:

This parameter is set to the value 2.319.282.339

Through further investigations of alert<SID>.log I got the following information:

<b>Warning:EINVAL creating segment of size …

fix shm parameters in /etc/system</b>

After this I edited the file vi /etc/system and added:

<b>set shmmax=4294967295</b>

but nothing is changed.

Can som one help me here?

Thank you very much indeed!




Create a new project. The BIG advantage of that, that you can do resource control using projects (e. g. giving more CPU cycles to one project than to another).

Another big advantage of using projects is, that you don't have to change /etc/system globally and reboot the machine.

It's one command you need to execute (prjadd) and one file you need to edit (/etc/user_attr), then you're done
