How to dynamically extend the CA 11 601 database area while the database is open?
Component: CA 11
Datacom/AD r15.0 has a modified extend command that can be used within the MUF joblog to allocate additional space while the base is open.
The DYNAMIC_EXTEND can be issued either as a console command to the MUF or via DBUTLTY COMM statement.
Below is an example of the command syntax issued via DBUTLTY COMM statement to extend the IXX by 50 cylinders:
//SYSIN DD *
COMM OPTION=CONSOLE,OPTION2='DYNAMIC_EXTEND 601,IXX,50,CYL'
Here is an example to extend the STP by 400 cylinders:
//SYSIN DD *
COMM OPTION=CONSOLE,OPTION2='DYNAMIC_EXTEND 601,STP,400,CYL'
Below is an example of the console command to the MUF:
/F mufstc,,DYNAMIC_EXTEND 601,IXX,50,CYL
This command will also work for Datacom/AD 14.0 when RO71530 has been applied. This can be done during live CA 11 access to the base.
The on-demand DYNAMIC_EXTEND feature is discussed in CA Datacom Core - 15.1 documentation section DYNAMIC_EXTEND
For additional information please also refer to the example shown in the following Datacom/AD article which shows an example for base 430, area IXX.
For CA 11 use DBID 601. Increase the space to the desired size.
