    Default [Problem][ZOSS][CentOS 5.2] Cannot install, weird java-related errors.

    This is a transcript from the error log.

    Code:
    Preparing packages for installation...
    zimbra-core-5.0.7_GA_2444.RHEL5-20080626020941
    Error occurred during initialization of VM
    Could not reserve enough space for object heap
    Could not create the Java virtual machine.
    error: %post(zimbra-core-5.0.7_GA_2444.RHEL5-20080626020941.i386) scriptlet failed, exit status 1
    I've been searching the forums for the different errors but i can't find anything related. I'm trying to install it on a Media Temple (dv) box.

    Please tell me if there's anything else i should add to this post!

    Can you run this:
    free -m


    Also, can you please post your install log?

    Welcome to the forums,

    Give it at least 1GB - your swap total is also reporting nothing allocated, might give it a little bit...

    FYI the Zimbra system requirements list 1.5GB - 2GB as minimum.

    That's actually enough to create a VM. On my parallels, I use 314 MB total ram with RHEL 4.
    It could be RAM, but if the server didn't install to begin with, then the VM won't be created

    Well while waiting for some logs from /tmp figured I would address the 'if you plan to use this for a production setup you may want to increase the ram a bit' aspect - granted I don't know if this is just for personal.
    Can't say I've even attempted to use as low as 300MB recently - my test vm's are usually 512MB, 768MB, or 1GB typically RHEL5 (on CentOS) or Ubuntu6.

    (mt) Media Temple - (dv) Dedicated-Virtual Server : Pricing - good company - though might hold on shelling out another $30/mo on top of the $120/mo (+ if you have other add-ons) till we can nail down the issue of course.

    Sorry for the late reply, timezones suck.

    free -m shows this

    Code:
                 total       used       free     shared    buffers     cached
    Mem:           673         11        661          0          0          0
    -/+ buffers/cache:         11        661
    Swap:            0          0          0
    Since its a virtual machine i think the swap partition is shared, ie it should be 20gb.

    Thanks for all the help and links, I truly appreciate this!

    Is this something you are able to change with Media Temple's service, because I think I'm having the exact same problem with my (dv).
