Adding a new disk to metaset failed

Question by: Maria Jose Martinez Ogazon System Senior Specialist Real MVS Española

Hi, I want to add a new disk to a metaset but I can not becuase when I run the command this messages appears, do I have any problem with my swap ? sun36:root:/root# metaset -s dosdg -a c2t0d0 metaset: sun36: swapctl(SC_LIST): Not enough space Thank so much and regards Mari

Could be several things. How large is your state database when the volumes were created?

I would make sure you meet all the requirements in the way of the partitions on the new drive. S7 could be totally valid, but if you have overlaps on the partitions it will fail. Metaset should repartition the drive and allocate enough space automagically, but other conditions could be preventing it from being able to. Also validate your drive has the right geometry to add to the set you want to share. The conditions of adding a drive are in the man pages. You might try copying the vtoc over from a known good drive onto this new one of c2t0d0 then try adding it. Just a thought.
