Error description

  • Suppose a database that uses automatic storage exists in a
    multi-paritition instance with multiple physical partitions.
    Furthermore, the local database directory contains symbolic
    links to different physical paths on each machine.
    When a new partition needs to be added, the ADD DBPARTITIONNUM
    command fails with SQLCODE -1031 because
    the storage path from a non-catalog partition cannot be resolved
    on the catalog partition.
