TSM DB extension question


Hi All

question regarding TSM DB, TSM DB Sits on two drives D & E of 100 GB size each,as there were only 10GB free space was left on both drives so we increased the size of D & E by 100GB each now, my questions is

* when you run q dbspace, it shows 200 GB free space available however when you run q db, it has the same old total pages, usable pages, used pages and free pages..... so when the TSM useup the remaining free pages, is it gonna be extended automatically as there are 100 GB free space available on each drive now or we need run the command "extend dbspace D:,H: to extend the database.

BTW we are running TSM 6.3.

Thanks lots in Advance

The number of pages is based on the number of database volumes (files) created on the filesystems already. As DB2 needs to create new volumes(files), you'll see the total number of pages go up.

You only use extend dbspace if you add filesystems to the database, you do nothing in TSM if you extend the size of the filesystems outside TSM.
