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.
