Solution:

This can happen for various reasons. It usually happens if the OS has some memory problems. Please try the following:

  1. Restart the OS
  2. Increase heap size

On Windows, edit file "startServer.lax" on the following line (value in bytes):
lax.nl.java.option.java.heap.size.max=

On Unix, edit file "startServer" on the following line (value in MegaBytes):
MAX_HEAP_SIZE=

Note: The procedure applies to all UNIX flavors except AIX. we have a separate knowledge document for AIX.
