    DBCA Build Stops with ORA-04030 out of Mem

    stanj Hot Shot

      I am running vSphere 4.1.

       

      I built a VM and installed Windows 2008 Enterprise Edition.

      The VM has 6 GB of RAM (as seen in the edit settings of the VM).

       

      I then installed Oracle 11g Standard One.

       

      I am using DBCA to build a DB from a DBCA template that was saved under Oracle 10g.

       

      The DB build proceed until the Oracle JVM is being installed

      Then I get the ora-04030 error (out of memory).

       

      The attached vCenter performance screen shows the VM has only 4 GB of RAM?

      BUT, the Windows Task Mgr is showing 6 GB matching the VM settings.

       

      Since this is Windows Server 2008 Enterprise, it looks like the Windows VM is seeing 6 GB, but the vCenter Perf screen is only showing the VM as having 4 GB.

       

       

      I assume the ora-04030 is because the install is only seeing 4 GB of RAM?

       

      Any suggestion on what is going on?

       

      thanks
