How much memory does your system have? 

What Operating system is it?

What version of NetBackup Java Console are you running?

Just increase the MAX_MEMORY variables. It's quite normal I would say when backup environments grow to a certain size. And it's not dangerous :-)

The error message is related to Java memory usage (java console)  - Not to Netbackup core memory usage.

See :

Assumption is the mother of all mess ups.

Have you tried to follow those instructions?
