Agile server is not getting started. It is throwing “Initial heap size set to a larger value than the maximum heap size” error. Already set JAVA_HOME environment variable. Also set _JAVA_OPTIONS = -Xmx512M. I am using 64 bit windows os with 4 gb RAM. Please help me to resolve this issue.

Hi,

This warning has been added since JAVA 8.
http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/8-compatibility-guide-2156366.html


Area: HotSpot / gc 

Synopsis

The command line flags PermSize and MaxPermSize have been removed and are ignored. If used on the command line a warning will be emitted for each.

Java HotSpot(TM) Server VM warning: ignoring option PermSize=32m; support 
was removed in 8.0
Java HotSpot(TM) Server VM warning: ignoring option MaxPermSize=128m; support 
was removed in 8.0
Nature of Incompatibility

This because the Perm Generation doesn’t exist anymore in Java 8.

So the warning is not related to your -Xmx=512M (Heap Size) param  but to the param -MaxPermSize=512M, which is related to the PermSize
