2449821 - SUM: ERROR: Insufficient free space

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.
