Configuring ASM failed with the following message: ORA-00845: MEMORY_TARGET not supported on this system

Posted by ssgottik on 13/12/2015

ERROR DURING INSTALLATION :
Configuring ASM failed with the following message:
Configuring HA resource failed. The following error occurred:
PRCR-1079 : Failed to start resource ora.asm
CRS-5017: The resource action “ora.asm start” encountered the following error:
ORA-00845: MEMORY_TARGET not supported on this system
. For details refer to “(:CLSN00107:)” in “/u01/app/grid/diag/crs/nracm1/crs/trace/ohasd_oraagent_grid.trc”.

CRS-2674: Start of ‘ora.asm’ on ‘nracm1’ failed

SOLUTION :

Starting with Oracle Database 12c, If MEMORY_MAX_TARGET or MEMORY_TARGET is set to a non zero value, and an incorrect size is assigned to the shared memory, it will result in an ORA-00845 error at startup.

Increase the size of MEMORY_TARGET and RESTART THE INSTALLATION.

Thanks
