    I would recommend an SR if possible....
    Clearly it was trying to do some DB Update.....

    I could not find any hits on this error with Oracle.
    I found a few Postgre specific ones....but even those are flagged as resolved.

    I create a support case i they said that the problem is because i not have enough memory
    I will increase memory i will try again update
  • If you server if virtualized, make sure to Dedicate the Memory....
    Failure to dedicate the memory can result in memory errors.

    The reason for this is that the Primary Servers make heavy use of Java Processes.
    Java requires the memory to be available upon process start...not simply when it goes to be used....
    Thus the VMware Java Best Practice Guide has a special section covering Java and Memory dedication....
