After installing JBOSS EAP 5.1.1 on my Linux Server, I am getting following error when I run JBOSS with command run.sh

JBoss Bootstrap Environment

JBOSS_HOME: /usr/lib/jboss-eap-5.1/jboss-as

JAVA: java

JAVA_OPTS: -Dprogram.name=run.sh -server -Xms1303m -Xmx1303m -XX:MaxPermSize=256m -Dorg.jboss.resolver.warning=true -Dsun.rmi.dgc.client.gcInterval=3600000 -Dsun.rmi.dgc.server.gcInterval=3600000 -Dsun.lang.ClassLoader.allowArraySyntax=true -Djava.net.preferIPv4Stack=true

CLASSPATH: /usr/lib/jboss-eap-5.1/jboss-as/bin/run.jar


Error occurred during initialization of VM Could not reserve enough space for object heap



The error seems to be saying that the virtual memory size of the machine is smaller than the maximum heap size we are defining via Xms1303m -Xmx1303m. I have changed it to -Xms256m -Xmx512m and it started working in my local Windows box.
