    Assuming you have authority and permissions, use the WRKDSTL command. I'm not sure what the maximum number of entries is, though it has to be at least a thousand, probably much more. (I've known of systems with more than 300k user profiles.)

    I haven't seen anybody use DSTLs for maybe 20 years since they're primarily for SNA distributions. Why use SNA in today's world when there are more appropriate mechanisms? Are you actully still trying to maintain a SNA network? (Why?)

    I agree with TheRealRaven, why use such old methods. Currently we have no distribution lists. I can see if you have an outside application that may require them but then again those should probably be updated as well.

    I ran across a reference to MsgID CPD90B1 today: 'Distribution limit of 9999 reached.' That's not directly related to entries on a DSTL, but there is a potential connection.

    IIRC, when sending to a DSTL, it's counted only as a single "distribution" regardless of the size of the DSTL. All (local) recipients actually see just views of the same distribution.

    Also, IIRC, the "distribution" continues to exist and to count against sender's total until the last recipients delete their incoming copies(views).

    But perhaps my memory is faulty. Or perhaps things changed as MSF evolved.

    Regardless, id DSTLs are important, management of distributions will also be important.
