Adding a datafile maxdb Linux / db_addvolume

Hello Folks,

I need some help in extending the current MaxDb database.

I have installed the 90 days Eval vesrion of WAS 640 on Linux/MaxDb. It by default instls with one datafile of nearly 6GB.

I have installed the SAPDBMGUI on Windows to manage the MaxDB on linux.

When I try to add the datafile from DBMGUI, its not allowing me to add.. Its throwing an error link file cannot be created.

I would highly appreciate your help if some one can give me some clue on this.

    I've moved your topic to a, in my eyes, more suited subforum.

    Can you please exactly specify:

    1. what kind of volume you're adding (raw or file)

    2. the exact error message you received

    Please check if:

    1. if there's enough space available there

    2. if the relevant permissions are set correctly

    Kind regards,
