Help............

I thought I had followed the advice in the memory advisor of my OEM.  Now I can not starut up the db.

In OEM I get a shared realm memory and via command line I get the above message when I try to do a startup nomount or mount.

I had evoked the ASMM in oem and applied the advice for SGA and PGA.  What parameter do I have incorrect and where....in the SPILE or initora file?

High priority ...........help

look in your alert.log, it should tell you more information and how do correct it; you will most likely be able to change a param in your init.ora and mount from there instead of spfile; then when you get it mounted and opened, recreate your spfile.

good luck,
