Hey,

One of the SAS job is failing due to lack of disk space. I tried increasing space , adding options=mywork , increased the work space but still no luck. icon_redface.gif

any good solution to overcome this problem..

I know adding Utilloc works but not sure how to add it in job card

It may or may not work. . .

There is usually a WORK= parameter in the SAS procedure that specifies the amount of work space to allocate; this can typically be changed via JCL.

Suggest you talk with your storage management people and determine if you are using the correct storage pool for your process. I'd suggest you talk with them before trying utilloc. There is information about utilloc on the sas website.

Lack of disk space for which DD name? If your output file is filling up, adding space to the WORK DD name isn't going to change your outcome at all. If you'd posted the exact messages SAS gave you, that would have helped identify the problem. Adding more packs can be beneficial, depending on what the problem is.

A quick Google search (under 2 minutes) for "SAS z/os utilloc" found:
Quote:
UTILLOC = "location" | ("location1", "location2", ...)

location

can be one of the following:

*

an HFS directory in the UNIX System Services file system.
*

an ALLOC command that specifies the amount of space to be used for each utility file. You can include any of the following keywords in your ALLOC command: TRACKS, CYL, BLOCK, SPACE, UCOUNT, VOL, UNIT, STORCLAS, MGMTCLAS, and DATACLAS.

Here are some examples of the UTILLOC= system option.

UTILLOC='ALLOC UNIT(DISK) UCOUNT(2) CYL SPACE(20,100)'
UTILLOC='/dept/prod/utility'
UTILLOC=('ALLOC UNIT(SYSDA) UCOUNT(2) CYL SPACE(15,15)')
UTILLOC=('ALLOC UNIT(SYSDA) VOL(SCR001) CYL SPACE(15,15)',
'ALLOC UNIT(SYSDA) VOL(SCR002) CYL SPACE(15,15)')
UTILLOC=('/dept/prod/utility1', '/dept/prod/utility2')
UTILLOC=('ALLOC UNIT(DISK) CYL SPACE(20,100)',
'/dept/prod/utility')

How are we expected to be of any help when we are not told the exact nature of the problem.

You need to either show the error messages and codes.
