UNIX Application install


I am currently installing an application (tar ball) on a server that involves ftp from my computer to the server directory (unix). Once it is deployed, I am now responsible to getting it to run. Using putty, i telnet/ssh to the remote node and type in the following command: vi .kshrc. I then add the necessary block of text indicating path and home directory for application
# Module Name
export MODULEName_HOME=${server_HOME}/type/moduleName/current

once this is done i logout the current session and log back in through putty.

I then need to update the softlinks to the correct application version and do so by:
1. cd $MODULEname/..
2. rm -rf current (delete the file, if it is present)
3. ln -s W_X_Y_Z current (e.g. ln -s 2_0_0 current)
And finally i type in: moduleNamectl start
After all this is completed. I still end up with an error message within the ctl log stating: Error occurred during initialization of VM
Could not reserve enough space for object heap
If anyone has any opinion on how to fix this problem or perchance an error in my method.

Let me know,

Any help is great.

This sounds like you're installing a java app, and when you start it java is trying to grab more memory than what your system has available. Check the startup script for the java command, and one of the arguments is probably the memory size. Try changing that, but beware that it may affect the app's performance.

Re: neildemo

From what you understand, you're right by saying its a java app, however from there, how would i be able to access the startup script that you were mentioning?

Depends, what OS/distribution is this server running?

"And finally i type in: moduleNamectl start" Look at the file 'moduleNamectl'. When you pass the argument 'start' to it, it most likely either runs java with a bunch of options, or calls another script that runs java. You want to find the arguments that are being passed to the java command. I don't remember the exact argument for setting the memory size, but you can probably just google that.

So i did as you said and brought down the memory heap level on the machine, and it is still giving me the same error?
