Low resources when trying to start multiple partitioned Domino servers on AIX

Technote (FAQ)


An Administrator set up 11 Domino partitioned servers on AIX 5.2. When trying to bring up the 7th server instance, it would not start and OS would generate core dump.


The Administrator was using PercentAvailSysResources to distribute memory allocation appropriately. The Issue was resolved by setting Resource Limits (both soft and hard limits) to "unlimited" for all users.
