SOA Suite 11g: Unable to start domain (Error occurred during initialization of VM)
By Chris Tomkins on May 13, 2010
If you have recently installed SOA Suite, created a domain and then tried to start it only to find it fails with the error:
Error occurred during initialization of VM
Could not reserve enough space for object heap
Could not create the Java virtual machine.
the solution is to edit the file <domain home>\bin\setSOADomainEnv.cmd/sh (depending on your platform) and modify the line:
set DEFAULT_MEM_ARGS=-Xms512m -Xmx1024m
to something like:
set DEFAULT_MEM_ARGS=-Xms512m -Xmx768m
Save the file and then try to start your domain again. Everything should now work at least it does on the Dell Latitude 630 laptop with 4Gb RAM that I have.
