Problems With Server


Recommended Posts

I am trying to create a server for my friends and I to play on, but whenever i run launch.bat I get this message:

C:UsersnatinyDesktopTekkit Server>java -Xmx3G -Xms2G -jar Tekkit.jar nogui
Error occurred during initialization of VM
Could not reserve enough space for object heap
Error: Could not create the Java Virtual Machine.
Error: A fatal exception has occurred. Program will exit.
C:UsersnatinyDesktopTekkit Server>pause
Press any key to continue . . .
Some help would be great, thanks.

Do you have at least 2-3 GB RAM free? Seems like not. Try to free up some RAM by closing other programs OR lower the 3G and 2G values in the startup line. Note; lowering these values to much can impact your server performance.

Is that server running 32-bit Windows? A 32-bit operating system can only address about 3 GB of RAM total including the operating system and any other programs, in which case trying to give Java up to 3 GB (-Xmx3G) will not work. You would need to try giving Java less maximum RAM (maybe -Xmx2G). And with 32-bit (or not enough CPU cores) you also might not be able run a Tekkit client on that same computer.


Running only the server should not be a problem if you have 64-bit Windows with at least 4 GB RAM? Although, I seldom run Windows at home. I use 64-bit Linux on a computer with 8 GB RAM which can run a Tekkit server and Tekkit client.
