Hi,

My postgreSQL 8.2.4 is installed on Windows server 2003 Enterprise
Edition.

Windows Server configuration:

RAM 4GB

HDD 50 GB

Processor: Pentium 4 CPU 3.20 GHz

 

When the shared_buffers = 2048 MB is set in the Postgresql.conf file,
while starting the service, I got the error

 

Could not open process token "error code-5".

 

Please help me out.

 

Thanks & Regards,

Sima

Without more information its hard to say -- you might provide some
information about what operating system and what version of postgreSQL.

I have some vague memories of "error code 5" being sometimes a message
that indicates that there are insufficient file handles available. Not
sure if this applies in your case, so if you coulkd provide more context
a more helpful response might be found from some one on this list.

On a side note this, cross-posting is usually not considered good form;
the admin list is probably the most suitable for this one. And the list
owner is almost never the right address since that's an alias for
isssues about the list itself, such as signing up, etc.
