Thanks. I just reviewed metalink Doc ID: Note:317257.1

And unless I am misreading it ... they are related to containers and I wouldn't touch them with an Oracle database.

You might also read Doc ID: Note:399895.1 "Solaris 10 sets the shared memory segments on projects, and it is suspected to be caused by projects not being setup correctly. Because of this, there is not sufficient SHMMAX available for Oracle to allocate the SGA, so startup fails."

The solution recommendation BTW is entries in /etc/system

I understand most SA's don't pay much attention to DBA concerns. But were I a DBA working with you I'd be very concerned until someone proved to me that my databases were not being put at risk.
