Hi Onkar,

Thank You for the response. I have already increased the size in the setenv.bat file to 1024m. But I'am facing the same problem. Please solve this issue ASAP

Thanks & Regards


You have increase JIRA Memory according to the steps which I sent you in link, Please also try JAVA memory as well.

Steps Control Panel >> Java >> Java Tab >> View >> You will see platforms there

Please try to increase the runtime parameters by -Xmx1024m.

If you're stuck, then post all of the memory settings here. Java memory settings are not as simple as just increasing one to make a problem go away.
