Introduction:

LBX01 REQUEST REJECTED DUE TO EXCESSIVE STORAGE REQUIREMENT

Question:

How do we resolve the "LBX01 REQUEST REJECTED DUE TO EXCESSIVE STORAGE REQUIREMENT" error condition? This only happens for very large PDS files. Possibly over 3 or 4 thousand entries. 

Answer:

There is not enough storage to display all members of the user library. 

This message is being issued from the LIBEXIT. The distributed LIBEXIT 
is issuing a GETMAIN of 100K for the Attach LIB. 

Recommend: You increase the AM24LIM and AM31LIM values in LIBEXIT and reassemble. 

The LIBEXIT is in RO60OPT library and use MRO607F to reassemble. 

Here is what the exit defaults to: 

AM24LIM DC A(100*1024) BELOW-16MB STORAGE LIMIT (100K) 
AM31LIM DC A(300*1024) ABOVE-16MB STORAGE LMIIT (300K) 

You might try these values as they have worked in the past for some customers:


AM24LIM DC A(200*1024) BELOW-16MB STORAGE LIMIT (100K) 
AM31LIM DC A(800*1024) ABOVE-16MB STORAGE LMIIT (300K)
