Expanding a space

Expand a space immediately instead of waiting for the database server to automatically expand the space.

Prerequisites: For this action, the HCL OpenAdmin Tool (OAT) for Informix® requires HCL Informix version 11.70. The space must be expandable, and the storage pool must contain entries that the database server can use to expand the space. To make the space expandable, click Modify. To add storage pool entries, expand the Storage Pool panel and click Add.

To expand a space:

  1. On the OAT menu, click Space Administration > Storage.
  2. Expand the Spaces panel.
  3. On the Spaces page, select the space.
  4. Click Expand.
  5. Optional: To specify the amount by which to expand the space or to add a chunk to the space, on the Expand Space page, click Show Advanced Options.
  6. Complete the fields on the page.
