When starting ArcSDE, you may receive the following error message at the command prompt or in the sde.errlog file:
Unable to initialize table registry (-219)
This error is caused when the REGISTRATIONS parameter in the giomgr.defs file is set too low.
Set the REGISTRATIONS parameter in the giomgr.defs file to a value equal to or greater than the total number of rows that exist in the TABLE_REGISTRY table.
This has been resolved at ArcSDE 8.1 SP1.
