I have a prophet 21 acclaim system (old) but is my life.. (small business)
Ibm risc sys/ 6000 43p-140

I have a message popping up that is not allowing me to get in to my system.

Code:
The data space of the process is not enough for the shm segment (1176)
There is no server for the database /usr/lpp/p21pro/db/dyn. (1423)

If you dont mind I will move this threat to a more appropriate room ( AIX ) as I dont see anything "beginner" in this post but more a AIX sysadm Q.
You said nothing about your OS ( I resume AIX) and version ( the last I saw was my SP2 console and last version on it was 4.3.1 I think or did I leave it in 4.2.3 ? ) but it was, yes long time ago...
We need to know a minimum like the OS version and level ( cmd: oslevel ) then in your case as its a small workstation format, your disk layout using lsvg and df in case to see if we have free space in case of need, last: what is running on this 43P...

What do you mean ? You are connected but this message keeps appearing on your screen? Oh are you using graphics? XWindows GUI?

My first thoughts as I have no idea what is prophet21 acclaim system abut little googling says its an ERP and perhaps you have a progress DB, shm segment this I know better and would suspect is responsible of the second line error

What user is used for prophet/progress db ? And what is the ulimit? But I would say I doubt it be here only this is the first thing to look at... cmd:

Code:
 ulimit -a

and should be unlimited...

What is the size of your shared memory? How much RAM on the system?
when total amount of shared memory a process tries to attach to exceeds the OS-allowed limit, you get such error, on a 32bit OS ( which Im sure is the case...) it would be around 1.6 GB ( that is what I had for oracle instances...)
So next Q: how many instances of progress or ?db do you have running?
Is this the first time?
When was the last time the system was rebooted?
If not after a reboot
I suggest to look if more than one instance running at possible shared memory fragmentation, if you see no solution there, then stop the/all instance of db ( because that message means the following line cannot execute and I understand a db instance cant be brought up... So one stopped see what is left in shared memory, is there any memory still attached to db ? If so it should not and remove it - It may be the culprit
And try to start all again
Of course the easiest would be a reboot that would clean the lot... Maybe the easiest and fastest if you can...

A totally different case if it occured just after a reboot of course, which doesnt mean all the above is absurd, but needs to be figured out in what way it could be affected by the sort:
Any new instance added?
Has someone changed any parameters? ( especially for the instance - (like oracle's SGA...)
If not, anything is the system logs??? errpt -a...

I think i can answer that at least partially: the 43P-140 is a single-processor PowerPC 603e system (Power 3) and therefore the latest AIX version it could run would be AIX 5.1.

Regarding the question: these seem to be both messages of the application, not the OS, so i suppose the problem is with the application. ULIMITs might be a factor, though, at least regarding the first message.

I hope this helps.
