Are we getting the ORA-00382 error because we're at maximum block size?

Are you receiving the ORA-00382 error when determining Solaris block size? Learn what the maximum block size on Solaris is in this expert tip.

I am getting the ORA-00382 error: 32768 not a valid block size on a Solaris 5.10 O/S with Oracle I think this is possible on Solaris as I used it when working for a previous employer. Do you know what I have to do to get this to work?
As far as I can determine, Oracle on Solaris does not support a 32K block size. The max block size is 16K. Are you sure you weren't running Oracle on another O/S?
