Increasing the size of a Bundl file


Article ID: 241277


Updated On:




We are intermittently receiving messages similar to the following:

BND7031I File DDNAME is XX% FULL. <-- Appears when, at least, 80% full.   
BND7032E File DDNAME is 90% FULL. <-- Appears when, at least, 90% full.

How can we add space to expand the size of a Bundl INDEX, PAGE or TABLE file?


z/OS, Bundl, VSAM


File reached capacity.


If an INDEX, PAGE or an Administrative TABLE file becomes full, you may experience serious processing problems until you expand the file size.

- To increase the size of a Bundl file, you will have to perform the "REORG" procedure, which basically consists of a IDCAMS -  BACKUP,DELETE,DEFINE,REPRO.

- Sample JCL for this process can be found in your Bundl installed 'hlq...PPOPTION' library in the CC50JORG member.

Actions to perform for increasing the size of a Bundl VSAM file are as follows:

1. Remove the file from service (through the LSERV REMOVEFILE command) - Or shut down ALL Bundl jobs and the LSERV task completely.
2. Make a backup copy of the file (through the IDCAMS utility).
3. Change the space allocation parameters for the file.
4. Delete original file and re-allocate it (through IDCAMS).
5. Restore the backup copy (through IDCAMS).
6. Put the file back in service (through L-SERV ADDFILE command) - Or restart the LSERV task and applicable Bundl jobs.

* If the file referenced in BND7031I or BND7032E message is a page data file (PDF0-PDF9), you can make it larger (as described above), or make sure that DSF records using this file also point to other page data files.
