    You showed the message text but not the message identifier. That makes it difficult to find what the message is and what it means. Many messages can have the same text. It seems to be message ID CPF375E. The rest of the message tells how to handle the condition. All Information Center versions have a Maximum Capacities. There is also a specific Save and restore limits that might help guide your changes. Tom

    I agree with Tom, there is always a limit. No matter which way you look at it Your library is getting too big. Either too many members in files, or too many logicals/views/indexes over them. First have a look at the simple number of objects, then including all members, etc. Test cycles always go for one or two turns and then production is left with the rest. In the end there are 2 options: Purge multi-member files Move logical files/views/indexes to an additional librairy which should be saved after the librairy with the phusicals (so be careful about the name). Mind you, once you hit the limit there is a big chance you will hit it again soon. So use it a quick and dirty solution and then look for the real one.

    There's no way for us to know for certain what the problem is with the library. There is a good probability that far too many members are being created in the data files in that library -- if logical files and indexes are involved, the probability rises as the 'Save and restore limits' page explains. If that's the case, then whatever the application is, it probably needs to be redesigned. It almost certainly needs some clean up work. But it might be temporary user spaces that aren't being deleted or a number of other possibilities. We can't tell from here. The DSPOBJD command might be used to create an outfile of all objects in the library. A SQL query could then do a COUNT(*) grouped by object type to get a first indication of (a) how many individual objects are in the library and (b) which object types have the largest numbers. Those should guide whatever clean up work is to be done. Tom

    Tom: There’s no way for us to know for certain what the problem is with the library. There is a good probability that far too many members are being created in the data files in that library ! ...... Yes thats a correct guess too many members created in the data files,,,our application support has done the clean up, tomorrow we are going to take again full backup including the lib which is not saving during last backup. Thanks for the help and the suggestions.
