Java Error – Dell Compellent Enterprise Manager Client

Posted by robd on January 05, 2016

If you this after install:

Error: Could not create the Java Virtual Machine.

Error: A fatal exception has occurred. Program will exit.


I fixed it by doing the following:

  • Open the Control Panel
  • Go to System
  • Go to Advanced Systems Properties
  • Then Environment Variables
  • In System Variables, click Add
  • New Variable Name: _JAVA_OPTIONS
  • New Variable Value: -Xmx512M
  • Click OK

That’s it.
For those interested, Java -Xmx/s is the configuration parameter that control the amount of memory Java uses.

Xmx sets the maximum heap memory size

Xms sets the minimum heap memory size
