Questions:

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 : http://www.symantec.com/docs/TECH65866

Assumption is the mother of all mess ups.

The error message and instructions on how to solve it are all in that pop-up.

Have you tried to follow those instructions?

The defaults are very small. These are the defaults in Windows setconf.bat:

SET INITIAL_MEMORY=36M
SET MAX_MEMORY=256M
