Ora-27123 When Creating New Database (Doc ID 307323.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 02, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Database Configuration Assistant - Version 10.1.0.2 and later
Red Hat Advanced Server
Checked for relevance on 23 Jul 2012


Symptoms

When using DBCA to create a new DB, if memory usage of 8% or more of the physical memory is specified, ORA-27123 is reported. 
If memory usage is specified as 5%, the database is created without error.

Why does DBCA raise ORA-27123 attempting to create a database on a machine with greater than 4Gb physical memory?
