Minimum 8 GB ?? Server not starting ??

Hello,

the server is not starting (or only partially). Somebody mentioned in this forum that a minimun of 8GB is necessary for running SAP in VMware. Our computer has only 4 GB, so could it be that the reason ??

I see in the syslog node the following error message:

operating system call gethostbyname failed (error 11004)

perform rollback

transaction cancelled

I found guys mentioning in some other forums some OSS notes, but I cannot apply this because I cannot access SAP for checking the reports and transactions that they mention.

what should I do ??

      It has nothing to do with memory.

      I've handled many laptops running SAP on vmware on 2GB memory and it's fine, although the performance is not so superior.

      Is there blocked port on the OS?

    4 GB is too low for almost all SAP apps. I've seen ABAP and Java apps run at 6GB on VMWare but not lower than that. Any specific reason you are starting so low?
