Win2K /4GT - Request for imagecfg.exe utility

Charu Joshi


Hi all,

We have our production database ( hosted on Windows 2000 Server. Of
late we are frequently experiencing ORA-4030 errors, because the Oracle.exe
process footprint grows close to 2 GB.

I came across metalink notes 46001.1 and 116076.1, which mention a way to
configure Win2K OS, so that a process can grow upto 3GB, instead of the
original 2 GB. This requires a utility called imagecfg.exe. This is supposed
to come with the Server Supplement One CD of Windows 2000 Server.

I checked with our hardware people but they don't have the CD. I googled for
the utility, but the versions found did not have the '-l' option that is
required for this task.

So may I request you to send the utility directly to me in a ZIP file
archive, if you happen to have it? Also, if you have used this utility
before, please care to share your experience.

Thanks & regards,
