Solaris 10 Operating System: 32 bit DB2 applications fail to start on UltraSPARC[R] IV+ and T1 platforms

(Doc ID 1017558.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 14, 2012

Applies to:

Solaris SPARC Operating System - Version 10 8/07 U4 to 11 11/11 [Release 10.0 to 11.0]
Oracle Solaris on SPARC (64-bit)
Oracle Solaris on SPARC (32-bit)


It has been observed that 32-bit instances of DB2 (versions 8.2 and below) will fail to start up properly when running on platforms which are using the Solaris[TM] 10 Operating Environment and have CPU architectures which are capable of using page sizes larger than 16MB.

Users who encounter this problem will observe an error such as the following:

SQL1084C Shared memory segments cannot be allocated. SQLSTATE=57019"
