2449821 - Db2: ERROR: Insufficient free space during upgrade with SUM tool

Symptom

          • During an upgrade an error of type "insufficient free space" can occur in the following phases:
            PREP_INIT/SPACECHK_INI
            PREP_SPACECHECKS/SPACECHK_OPT
            PREP_SPACECHECKS/FREECHK
          • You will see the following errors in the CHECKS.LOG/CHECKS.TXT
            ERROR: Insufficient free space in the database as follows.
          • Please refer to file /usr/sap/SWM/SUM/abap/log/DBFPLUSD.RES for more details and additional information about the results of the free space check.
          • In the DBFPLUSD.RES you will encounter the following error:
            ERROR: Extend file systems
            Containing <FILE1>
            <FILE2>

            IN TOTAL by at least <X> MB
            ERROR: Extend all storage paths of your database by at least <X> MB
          • It is important to note that in most cases the free space errors are correct and can be solved by executing DB6TBSXT.CLP.
            The first steps should always be to perform the following:
            1. Check the error messages
            2. Run db2 -tvf DB6TBSXT.CLP
            3. Repeat the phase
          • If you still observe the errors, where the freespace request can already be fulfilled with existing space then follow the workaround detailed below.
