Error description

  • You work with IBM SPSS Statistics Client: 26 FP1 on a Windows
    Server 2012 and IBM SPSS Statistics 26 FP1 Server on RHEL 7.6
    Your users should store their SPSS data files (*.sav) to a
    network NASdrive mounted by CIFS.
    For example you run below syntax:
    DATA LIST / name 1-4 (A) birthday (date10).
    BEGIN DATA.
    John01/01/1960
    Mary11/07/1955
    Kate25/11/1962
    Mark08/06/1959
    END DATA.
    
    LIST.
    SAVE OUTFILE='/UP001/test/data_spss.sav'
    /COMPRESSED.
    
    When you run the syntax first time the file data_spss.sav is
    stored on the NAS drive. However, when you run the SAVE OUTFILE
    command on same session the second time to overwrite the
    existing file you get an error and the file is not saved again
    to the mounted drive.
    
    Error # 1407
    >Error when writing the dictionary to a new data file.
    >Warning # 5322. Command name: SAVE
    >The attempt to save the data file has failed because the disk
    is full, an I/O
    >error has occurred, the variable dictionary is invalid, or the
    task was
    >interrupted. IF SAVING OVER AN EXISTING FILE, THAT FILE HAS
    BEEN LOST.
