Question:

When allocating a new CA View database, what does receiving a SARDBI01 message with ERROR=970C indicate?

Environment:
CA View - All releases
Answer:

When trying to allocate a new View database extent, and the message received is:

  SARDBI01  Index file allocation failed for view_hlq - ERROR=970C INFO=0000 DS=nnn

the ERROR=970C (indicating a dynamic allocation error) normally means:

                                    

 . The limit of the number of cylinders that can be allocated has been exceeded. 

   The CA View limit is 4369, and the IBM limit is 4376. 

   Note: Starting with View 11.6, IBM's Large Dataset feature can be used.

                                                                

 . A severe Storage Management Subsystem (SMS) VTOC error occurred, and the storage volume is ineligible for the View dataset name.

 . There is not enough contiguous space available on the storage volume.

 

Please determine which of the above pertains to the situation, correct what is necessary, and resubmit the allocation.
