Unable to extend tablespace while EhP4 upgrade

Hi Gurus,

We are doing EhP4 upgrade from EhP ready SR1. Our database version is DB6 9.7.2. We are using EhPI version 37.

In the chack phase the installer suggests to increase some tablspace size. But the tablespaces are in "Auto Storage Mode". We are unable to extend or add a container to it.

Any suggestions or workarounds for this issue?

Advance thanks.

Kind Regards,

Indrakumar

    hi indrakumar,

    please open an OSS message on BC-DB-DB6-UPG for this and attach the following logfiles from <upgdir>/log :

    - DBFPLUSD.RES

    - DB6TSINF.LOG

    - DB6GCONT.LOG

    - DB6TBSXT.CLP

    regards, frank

    How did you try extend the tablespace?

    I recall I had same problem. sapinst did not recognize the autoextend for strange reason.

    I patched up dbsl

    Note 1474361 - DB6: Internal error in modify_tablespace

      Thanks for all the replies.

      SAP replied with the following workaround and it worked for us.

      i)Save all files <upgdir>/bin/DBF.SPC and their content (for example by copying each of these files to DBF.SPC.SAV)

      ii) Empty all files <upgdir>/bin/DBF*.SPC; that is do not delete/remove these files but delete all content, so that these files are completely empty!

      iii) Make sure that you are having sufficient space in the file systems.

      iv) Restart the upgrade/SPACECHK. with empty files there are no space requirements and thus the SPACECHK should finish successfully.

      Kind Regards,

      Indrakumar
