Error description

  • The estimated size of backup sent to TSM when uploading a backup
    image to TSM using :
    
       db2adutl upload and remove images taken at ... db ...
    mgmtclass ...
    
    is always 4 Mb.  If DB2 under estimates the object size and when
    insufficient space is available on the TSM storage pool then TSM
    cannot anticipate backing up to a different storage pool
    resulting in "ANR0534W size estimate exceeded" being returned.
    Since DB2 is uploading a completed backup image from disk to
    TSM, the size estimate sent should be the real file size when
    calling dsmSendObj().
    

Local fix

  • Attempt to clear storage space in TSM and re-try.
