Issue/Introduction

Using DISK, it can happen that all BACKUP/ARCHIVE jobs get an ABEND U200 with IBM error message IEC331I 020-000(2908001C), as in the sample listing below:

Is there a way to fix this problem? 

Environment

Release : All

Component : CA Disk Backup and Restore

Resolution

The IBM Message IEC331I 020-000(2908001C) is documented at the below link:

https://www.ibm.com/support/pages/iec331i-020-0002908001c-catalog-cannot-extend

This error indicates that the catalog is unable to extend.  This error is described under IDC3009I and cites the following reasons:

 - There is no more space on the volume on which the catalog resides
 - The maximum number of extents has been reached (123)
 - The catalog has reached the 4GB limit
 - There is not enough contiguous space on the volume (required when the catalog's secondary allocation is defined in tracks).

the IBM documentation explains how to debug and possibly fix the Catalog problem.

With DISK it has been observes that one of the main reasons causing this issue is that the HIGH Used RBA value has reached the High Allocated RBA value in the User Catalog KSDS Vsam dataset, so that  the Idle Space is 0%.
An User Catalog REORG should be done in order to recover the situation and improve the Idle Space percentage.
