Start Up Error in Oracle Weblogic 11G

Posted on 2010-08-21
Last Modified: 2013-12-29

I have installed Weblogic 11g (10.3.3) on Solaris 10 64 Bit using generic jar file with Sun JDK 1.6 (32 Bit)

I don't have any problems running Admin Server but I am unable to start one Managed Server.

I am getting "Out of Memory Error: Perm Size" error.

I have tried by increasing perm size in domain env script but it doesn't solve the issue.

I have attached my and managed server's log file.

A quick help from EE is appreciated.

you need to increase the size of the perm gen memory :
in  the domain directory,
go to the bin directory
edit the script file
Search for MEM_PERM_SIZE and increase the value to 256
Save the file
restart your managed server.

Hi Ecolin,

I have increased the perm size in SetDomainEnv as you suggested.

Now the servers are running fine(Ports are up).

But I am getting permgen space error while testing the application on one of the cluster members.

I have made related changes to the SetDomainEnv, StartManagedWeblogic as well but no luck.

I have attached the files

Forgot to mention abt the memory. I am able to allocate only 2.3 GB(Out of 4GB of my Macbook) for the Solaris10  VM  on which I am running weblogic 10.3.3

increase again your perm gen space to 512. Your application may need it.

Hi Ecollin,

I have tried increasing the Perm Size but it couldn't resolve the issue.

I have swithed to the Windows env and Jrockit JDK,
