What was the error?

Message Number: 16

Message Severity: Error (Corrective action is required to continue)

Message Name: ARS0016E

Message Text: Unable to allocate enough DMS filesystem space for table. Need(integer),Available(integer), Extent(size)

What were you doing?

Probably loading new data into an existing Application Group.

What happened?

CMOD decided it was time to create a new table, as the current table had reached it's maximum size limit (usually 2.5 or 10 million rows). When CMOD attempted to allocate space for the new table, DB2 reported that there was not enough space available to create the table.


This message should be very rare. Database Managed Space is an older method for allocating storage to a database manager, and has been replaced with the more robust 'System Managed Space' ('SMS').

If you are still using DMS, have your administrator provide a new raw logical volume (AIX), slice (Solaris), or partition (Linux), and add the new storage to the database.

Consider Upgrading IBM CMOD and DB2 to a newer version.
