OPatch – Error occurred during initialization of VM, Could not reserve enough space for XXXXXXKB object heap

Posted by FatDBA on February 19, 2019

Hi Guys,

Disucssing a random issue what i’ve encountered few hours back, is a problem related with the new version of the OPatch which when unzipped generating a weird error and is discussed below.

[oracle@gunna:~/app/oracle/product/12.2.0/dbhome_1/OPatch/28822515]$ opatch prereq CheckConflictAgainstOHWithDetail -ph ./

Error occurred during initialization of VM
Could not reserve enough space for 39957221KB object heap

On OCS download page for OPatch, the auto version is set to 32-bit (Linux X86).
Check if the name of the downloaded file is something similar ‘p6880880_122010_LINUX.zip’. If yes, then you have downloaded the 32 bit version. Choose ‘Linux x86-64’ as the right vrsion and try again

Let’s try again.

[oracle@gunna:~/app/oracle/product/12.2.0/dbhome_1/OPatch/28822515]$ opatch prereq CheckConflictAgainstOHWithDetail -ph ./
