How to dynamically extend the CA 11 601 database area  while the database is open?

Environment

Release:
Component: 11

Resolution

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 :   


DYNAMIC_EXTEND 601,IXX,###,CYL 

 

Below is an example of 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 - 15.0 section “DYNAMIC_EXTEND” at


https://docops.ca.com/ca-datacom/15-0/en/administrating/ca-datacom-db-database-and-system-administration/using-the-multi-user-facility/modifying-muf-startup-options/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.
