Reconfiguring Solaris Kernel
Posted on 1997-06-12
I'm installing Oracle 7 on Solaris 2.5.1. Oracle requires several sared memory and semaphore parameters to be changed in /etc/system. However, when I try to start Oracle, I get the following message:
Connected to an idle instance.
ORA-07331: smsnsg: unable to allocate the variable portion of the SGA.
07331, 00000, "smsnsg: unable to allocate the variable portion of the SGA."
// *Cause: The variable portion of the SGA is too big to fit contiguously
// into one segment.
// *Action: Reconfigure the UNIX kernel to have bigger segments.
What do I need to reconfigure to get this to work?
