i am facing a problem , while trying to load records into a vsam file.
the error message thats coming is ** VSAM I/O RETURN CODE IS 28 - RPLFDBWD = X'2908001C'
this error generally occurs when no. of records that is to be loaded is huge amount.
i temporarliy increased the space of vsam file and ran job with good eoj.
is there any permanent fix for this kind of problems.
28 Data set cannot be extended because VSAM cannot allocate
additional direct-access storage space. Either there is not
enough space left to make the secondary allocation request,
you attempted to increase the size of a data set while
processing with SHROPT=4 and DISP=SHR, or the index CI is
not large enough to hold the entire CA. This error could
also be due to a data set trying to extend beyond 4GB on a
system that does not support extended addressability.
You may either allocate more primary space for the dataset or buy a software, which could dynamic add volume to the file when out of space situation (x37) occurs.
