Solution OF An Error ORA-27102

Scenario of The problem: 
In my computer I have two database. One database is running smoothly but another database is not started whenever I invoke startup. It fails with error,

SQL> startup
ORA-27102: out of memory
Solaris-AMD64 Error: 22: Invalid argument

Reason of The problem:
The database which could not start is because of the low memory on the system or in the sga_max_size there is high value set. So the system could not allocate so large memory as it does not have free so much. There may be other reasons like OS limitation in order of usage the memory. As in this case one database is ok (Both database are running on same user)and another database is failed so I suspect either low memory on the system or in the sga_max_size parameter inside spfile there is high value set.

Solution of The problem:
1)Set a lower amount of memory in the first database.
You can do it by, On dbase1,

SQL> alter system set sga_max_size=1600M scope=spfile;
System altered.

SQL> alter system set sga_target=1600M;
System altered.


Now set ORACLE_SID and start the instance.

bash-3.00$ export ORACLE_SID=dupbase
bash-3.00$ sqlplus / as sysdba

Connected to an idle instance.

SQL> startup
ORACLE instance started.

Database opened.

2)Lower the setting of SGA_MAX_SIZE, SGA_TARGET on the 2nd database. To do this create pfile from spfile.
SQL>create pfile from spfile;

And then edit the pfile parameter of SGA_MAX_SIZE and SGA_TARGET.

And start the database with the pfile.

SQL>STARTUP PFILE='pfile_name';

Later , Create spfile from pfile,
