No ASM instance is running on the machine.
Using DBCA to create an ASM instance it fails with:
ORA-27102: out of memory


Solaris 8 SPARC

/etc/system configured as such:
set noexec_user_stack=1
set semsys:seminfo_shmmax=0xffffffff
set semsys:seminfo_shmmin=1
set semsys:seminfo_shmmni=100
set semsys:seminfo_shmseg=10
set semsys:seminfo_semmni=100
set semsys:seminfo_semmsl=1000
set semsys:seminfo_semmns=2000
set semsys:seminfo_semopm=100
set semsys:seminfo_semvmx=32767
System has been rebooted. reboot -- -r

prtconf | grep size
Memory size: 1536 Megabytes

shell is csh with:
ulimit -Sa
ulimit -Ha

Veritas 3.1.1 VM installed but not managing the disk being used for ASM.

Tried the default settings and also tried to increase these values in the ASM Parameters. Neither worked.

Your help is appreciated in trying to figure out why I keep getting this out of memory error.
Thank you,
