Issue/Introduction

"Insufficient Memory for Getmain" error on Unix, AIX or Linux
EZWRAP(E) Completed with error. Exitcode = 1.

Environment

Release:
Component: EZTRLP

Resolution

The "Insufficient Memory for Getmain" message is generated when a memory allocation call (malloc) returns NULL.
This can happen if there is not a large enough block of contiguous physical memory to satisfy the malloc request.
Check how much physical memory is available on the system when you run the Easytrieve program - the error could be likely resolved by expanding the operating system physical memory size.
