Error description

  • When formatting new PSIDs to the environmet
    (with CYL=60,000MEG each), the
    CSQUTIL Queue Manager Utility ends with a
    "CSQU148I CSQUTIL Utility completed,
    return code=0".
    .
    CSQUTIL tried to format pages beyond the 64 GB limit.

    64 GB limit not be handled correctly when the dataset
    has an allocated size larger than 64 GB.

    ****************************************************************
    The CSQUTIL FORMAT function should only format pages upto 64GB
    of a pageset dataset. However the function incorrectly enforces
    this limit and continues to format pages passed this limit.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The 64GB limit of the FORMAT function has been corrected, to
    ensure pages beyond this limit are not processed.
