    I have Bukkit 1.2.5 installed with Remote Toolkit and Java 7. The computer has 12GB RAM.
    Whenever I try to start the server, it gives me this error:
    Error: A fatal exception has occurred. Program will exit.
    Invalid maximum heap size: -Xmx9216M
    The specified size exceeds the maximum representable size.
    Error: Could not create the Java Virtual Machine.
    I did a little research and found out that it means that Java doesn't think we need that much RAM. Is there any way around this?

    More information would help. In this case, the output of java -version would be extremely helpful.

    java version "1.7.0_05"
    Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.7.0_05-b05)
    Java HotSpot(TM) Server VM (build 23.1-b03, mixed mode)
    Running Ubuntu Server, Intel Xeon, 12GB RAM

    I've found the problem, we are using 32 bit java.

    I figured that would be the case. :)
