Issue/Introduction



I am running a reorg on a somewhat large DB. The estimate for total primary space is over 80 cyl. Files 1 thru 8 are very large, between 5200 and 6600. I created an allocation for them of: 
CREATE DSMODEL WU0000* 
DSN 'HLQ.REORG07.&DD' 
UNIT SYSDA 
SPACE CYL(4000,350) 
BLKSIZE 27998 


But when I run the unload it abends on space because the file reaches the 65k tracks IBM restriction size. Is there a way around this?

Resolution

If the estimated size is too large for their environment then check on the number of slices that has been specified. 
Was able to get around the error by increasing the number of slices until the estimate is under the 65K trks.
