After downloading the product CA Insight Database Performance Monitor r15, or another large CA product, the installation fails. During the install at the unpax it stays on 'Please wait'. The install wizard is not yet showing.

The gimunzip fails with - INFO - Error occurred during GIMUNZIP

The log shows:

IEC030I B37-04,IFG0554A,D351692,STEP1,SYSPRINT,4C19,BPR101,X00CV02.R3.SYSPRINT...

SB37-X'4' occurred while processing data set X00CV02.R3.SYSPRINT on volume...

Cause: SYSPRINT runs out of space during the install.

Additional Information: This could also happen during install of any other large product packages


MSM allocates the SYSPRINT output dataset initially with cyl(30,30).

The SYSPRINT file is closed and opened many times after an action, but not deleted.

Here the SMS management routines/management class kicks in at the first close and optimize/reduce the allocation to cyl(1,1).

The size is adjusted to the size of the first output file created.

Lateron however, during the receive and apply, this small allocation will cause the SB37 abend.

Check the SMS rules/routines and verify that no optimization rules are in place for these datasets.
