Getting error creating a new DB:

SARDBI01  Index file allocation failed for db-name - ERROR=970C INFO=0000 DS=001

Environment

Release:
Component: VIEW

Resolution

CA View does not support extended-format datasets. While it can work with Extended Access Volumes (EAVs), it can only use the standard portion of the volume. It cannot use the extended space due to the way it performs database I/O operations. So, even though there may be a space available on EAV volume, if that space is in the extended area, CA View still cannot use it.
