How to bypass it and have the Backup end correctly?
CA DISK all releases
Usually the error:
ADSVS067 2545 GET: WORK AREA NOT LARGE ENOUGH FOR DATA RECORD
indicates that the CA Disk IOMAXREC Sysparm value is too low and should be increased :
IOMAXRECnnnnnn - This sysparm specifies the maximum logical record size for data sets processed by CA Disk. The default value is 65,000 bytes. The maximum value for this sysparm is 999,999 bytes. To save real storage, this sysparm should be set to the lowest value possible that still allows normal CA Disk processing.
So, in order to bypass this error, it is possible to rerun the Backup procedure increasing this Sysparm value and taking care of the notice provided about how to save real storage.
If, after this change, the problem persists, You need to rerun the same job with the following diagnostic statements added and open a CA Disk case, attaching the complete joblog :
