The client unintentionally added a View database index extent.

Can they delete the index extent to reclaim space?



Release : 14.0

Component : CA View


A review of the client's SARDBASE STATUS FULL output showed that all of their index extents were allocated and contained used blocks.

If any database extent (data or index) appears in a STATUS FULL listing, then the extent cannot be deleted and needs to be retained to the database.

The only suggestion, if a reduction in index space is required, would be to resize the database, which would include needing to have all database tasks down (including Deliver).
