Hi
I have encountered the following error while building alternate index.
'IDC3201I CONSTANT 'G90717.LIBY.KSDS.CLU' EXCEEDS LENGTH LIMIT'.The position of keys and record size is correct, I am able to define and create path for the aix, only when I try to build I am getting the above error.
Kindly advise.
Thanks for your time.

there could many reasons for the message..
many of them depend on the maintenance applied

for example You might be trying to define a cluster with a primary quantity
greater than the space available on the volume...
or
the list of the candidate volumes is longer than the supported maximum
I might be wrong but I seem to remember an apar quoting the error message
when more than 20 candidate volumes were specified

If You post the relevant jcl and the relevant jes output
we might try to be more helpful

IDC3201I CONSTANT 'xxx' EXCEEDS LENGTH LIMIT
Explanation: A constant is longer than the maximum allowed by the parameter definition or by the implementation.
The constant that exceeded the maximum length.
System Action: Processing skips to the end of the command. The system resumes interpretation with the next command.
Application Programmer Response: See the definition of the parameter value in question. Specify an allowable value. Run the command again.
System Programmer Response: If the error recurs and the program is not in error, search problem reporting data bases for a fix for the problem. If no fix exists, contact the IBM Support Center. Provide the SYSOUT output for the job.

OUTFILE(G90717.LIBC.KSDS.AIX)
