APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • Consider a table A with a trigger defined on it and the trigger
    inserting into a different table B, now B getting full, so next
    insert would have to add a new round-robin fragment (with B
    being RR fragmented and AUTOLOCATE on).
    
    What can happen instead, with next activity on A executing the
    trigger, is that A is getting a fragment added while B remains
    full, and since nothing changed in B, this might even happen
    again.
    

Local fix

  • This might be a transient problem. To completely prevent it,
    don't rely on AUTOLOCATE for adding a new round-robin fragment.
