Solution or Workaround

In the giomgr.defs file, comment out MINBUFSIZE and MAXBUFSIZE and uncomment the same parameters with higher values.

You can do this by following these steps:

  1. Open the giomgr.defs file (under $SDEHOME/etc) using a text editor and comment out the following parameters:

    Example:
    MINBUFSIZE 16384 # minimum buffer size > 4096

    MAXBUFSIZE 65536 # maximum buffer size > MINBUFSIZE
  2. Next, uncomment the same parameters that have a higher value

    Example:
    MINBUFSIZE 409600 # minimum buffer size > 4096
    MAXBUFSIZE 819200 # maximum buffer size > MINBUFSIZE

  3. Set these parameters back to their original value after you have performed the move actions in ArcMap.
