Re: Strange error when resizing MEMORY_TARGET

Hi Tony,
how many CPU's does the database see? If this is Solaris on the T-Series servers its possible that there is a minimum sizing on some of the SGA components based on the number of CPU's that the database can see. There is a discussion in MOS note # 1097866.1 around this. My previous experience with this issue was just with the SGA_TARGET setting - i'm not sure if this also applies when using MEMORY_TARGET.
