VOLUME selection failed for insufficient space

Postby aimin8828 » Sat Jun 01, 2013 6:31 pm

Dear all:

We have two Jobs running at the same time to apply multi-vololume(the new creation file almost 5000 Cylinders), one job failed with the following message and the other is still running.I want to know does it mean the job failed due to can not allocate space? in other words, the system do not allow the more than two Jobs with multi-vol allocation runnning at the same time?? please help to make me clear, thank you.

JOBNAME (CKRSATH ) STEPNAME (NATURAL )
PROGNAME (NATBATCH) DDNAME (CMWKF01 )

The system can run as many multi-volume requests as it needs. What it cannot do is allocate space when there is no space available which, if you read it, is what your message is saying.

What you now need to do is stop this happening again either by re-scehduling so that these two jobs do not try to run together or they use different storage groups. So either speak to your scheduling group or your storage admin
The problem I have is that people can explain things quickly but I can only comprehend slowly.
