Getting the following error when trying to login to the DevTest Workstation inside the server:

The JVM could not be started.  The maximun heap size (-Xmx) might be too large or an antivirus or firewall tool could block the execution.

The above problem started occurring since the past 3 days.  It was not there before.

Component : CA Service Virtualization
