During the starting of JMO 3.1 on Unix, I am getting following error messages:

- ERROR 282J: Maximum number of transactions is 234 

- Unable to start Database cashdb. 

NSM 3.1 on AIX running Job Management Option release 3.1It can happen on any Unix/Linux platform running JMO 3.1

CADB error code 282J means:


The number of transactions specified exceeds the maximum number allowed

The  maximum number of transactions is 234



With an editor, open file $CAIGLBL0000/sche/scripts/rc and update following line :

From: $CAIGLBL0000/bin/caidb start 'cashdb(1024,1024,1024,ON)'

To: $CAIGLBL0000/bin/caidb start 'cashdb(512,512,234,ON)'

Then restart JMO with:


unishutdown sche

unistart sche

Additional Information:

The max number of transactions is driven by the third parameter.

The first two others are for internal CADB buffer size
