Backup return code -8020

Every night we backup all our databases using the dbmcli command backup_start.

This has been working fine for some months, but one of the databases has started returning a code -8020.

I have looked in the dbmcli documentation, and while some return codes are documented, this one isn't.

The command does create a backup file.

The MaxDB backup logs do not record a full data backup.

Can anyone tell me what this code means, or point me to documentation for it?

Thanks

Chris Harris

    Found the answer - looks like we ran out of space on the file system.

    Hello Chris,

    The database error "-8020: Next volume required" has short description for Explanation & User Response

    In MAXDB library. Link http://maxdb.sap.com/doc/7_7/default.htm -> Reference

    -> Messages -> Number Ranges

    As you could see, that the DbError -8020 occurred, when you running the backup, if

    there is no more space on the data carrier currently being used. As you wrote, you

    ran out of space on the file system.

    Thank you and best regards, Natalia Khlopina
