Insufficient available disk in the root dbspace for the CM save area. Increase the size of the root dbspace in the ONCONFIG file and reinitialize the server.


The cause might be one of the following:

  • The user attempted to increase the number of storage objects to a specific value by changing CONFIGSIZE or setting MAX_DBSPACES, MAX_DBSLICES, or MAX_CHUNKS to a higher value, but the database server did not have enough rootspace for the increased number of storage objects. A storage object might be a dbspace, dbslice, or chunk.
  • The user converted to a database server version that requires slightly more rootspace, but it is not available (this case is unlikely).


Take one of the following actions:

  • Increase the size of the root dbspace or reset CONFIGSIZE, MAX_DBSPACES, MAX_DBSLICES, or MAX_DBSLICES to a lower value and restart the database server. For example, if you set MAX_DBSPACES to 32,768 but the root dbspace did not have enough space, set MAX_DBSPACES to a lower value.
  • Increase the size of the root dbspace and reinitialize the database server.
