DB2 - Maximum single container data file size


Hello all,

Can you please advice me what is the maximum size of single DB2 container (data file) ?

Automatic storage management is activated for the database and also for tablespaces with only one storage path defined. Currently, for largest tablespace, there is only one container existing and has size already 215GB.

I know that it is not possible to add datafile manually if autostorage is activated, so how can I force creation of new container ?

I am quite new with DB2, so I will appreciate your answers.
