Hi,

First parameter detemines the primary extent and second one is for secondery extend. if all the primary is used up..it will start allocating he secondery qty..System can allocate 15 times the seconder qty per volume.. (so in ur case 2+3*15) ..Third parameter determines the directry records for PDS..

Pls correct me if I am wrong...
